  1. I guess the top one on the train is my favorite, but they’re all equally great. In number 9 at the bottom, the husband may have good reason to complain. $37 per day in ’54 is what almost $360 would be in 2021. For a week, $2,520. I guess it depends on where you’re going and $ situation. If they were staying at Disney World, it would probably be that much per day now!
