Childhood in Kentucky during the 50's was pretty much straight forward.  You woke up...went to the dressed...a bowl of cereal...then to the great outdoors.  At least this was true during the three months of summer vacation.  The weather cooperated on most days, and you could participate in all kinds of neighborhood adventures.  On rainy days you might still play outside...get soaked...and jumps around in all those puddles of water.  Now on some days that contained thunder and lighting you needed to stay indoors, and go to plan B.   Here is one example :

A beginning collector it was stated.  Led by the Cub Scouts, followed at end by the Brownies and  well dressed neighborhood kids betwixt, you marched into plan B.  It even showed the playful dog rising to the occasion.  What more could you ask for in a plan B... 4300 spaces for stamps... more than 2500 maps...and descriptions of each country... wow.  Good old Abe [born in Kentucky], honest George, and our friends to the north, are shown on the stamps carried above.

The back of the album continued the promises.  Stamp collecting brings fun and knowledge...even a couple of foreign languages were shown on these stamps.

 Let's get this plan B going.  Bring on the stamps......

 Wait a minute, you say it has stopped raining...back to plan A it is.
