My knickers

They stayed in style a long time. I remember my mother getting me a pair in 1940. Itched myself to death from the coarse-weave tweed. Hated them.

Lunch

I wonder if somebody (like me) 92 years from now will look at a picture from 2008 and see prices of lunch and laugh at how cheap it seemed to be? "Ha, ha, they paid $4 for a sandwich in 2008!"
