I’m bringing back memories today.  “Ding Dong – It’s The Fuller Brush Man” was a radio jingle as well as a reality.  I remember hearing this when I was child and either mom would go to answer the door prepared to restock or she’d send one of kids to tell… Continue reading Ding Dong – “It’s The Fuller Brush Man”
