OT: When You Were a Kid

Couple things I was thinking about, did you guys have the 12 o’clock whistle in your neighborhood when you were a kid or maybe you still have it. When I was a kid in Struthers from early 60’s until 72 I definitely remember the 12 o’clock whistle. It was always our reminder to stop playing and go home for lunch. 
Also, what kind of bicycle did you have when you were a kid? I had a Schwinn apple crate, wide tire in the back, small tire upfront, high handlebars, banana seat with the gearshift on the center bar. Gosh I wish I still had that bike. There was also a Lemon Peeler, gray ghost and orange crate in my neighborhood. It was very similar to the movie Sandlot - we hung around every day in the summer playing ball. It was a great neighborhood and I have such good memories of it.
