Oh wow - I loved this. Vivid delightful description of such an ordinary event from your childhood. Great intro, nice development of the topic and super conclusion. I honestly would not change a thing. I hope your dad knows how he contributed to your writing career; it would make him thankful for all those dandelions! :) (And I, too, remember the price of candy and swimming pool admission from those days - only I collected empty soda pop bottles to trade in for pennies. Fun memories, aren't they?)
Ha! My husband paid our kids a nickel for every nail they picked up in our yard when we were under construction!Loved your story--

Wow. I remember paying 50 cents to swim in the community pool. I forgot about that.
