Chippee, you know what I'm talking about exactly. I suppose some of my food issues stem from being brought up the same way, but I can only blame it to a certain point, of course! emoticon

Anyone remember a "dollar a car load drive in movies", and the cars then were so big, you could squeeze a person under the dashboard on the passenger side of the front seat, in front of the passenger sitting there, lol.

Ethel, so sad about your mother's family.
The same thing happened to my grandmother's mother and sister. My grandmother had a food fixation because of that. And during WW2 she bought food on the black market and hoarded it so her family here in the states would always have something to eat. Even when I was a child in the 50's and 60's she had a closet stocked with extra food.

We also were seated in alphabetical order. And yes, we had those wooden desks with the holes for ink. We used fountain pens and my favorite was blue/black ink, but then cartridge pens became available. It wasn't until I was a little older than ball point pens came out. Talk about high tech! LOL

Yes, my mother is amazing, her father was killed in WWI when she was 3, this was in Germany. She went through 2 WW's, her mother starved to death in Berlin. So she is afraid even now of not having food around, at the assisted living place.

I had forgotten about how we were placed in alphabetical order in the class, had to line up outside in that order, too.

Up until high school having to sit alphabetically. My last name started with "B", so I was always up front in view of the teachers. Also, schools were not wheelchair accessible, since there were no elevators.

We still had the old wooden desks in school, with the hole where the bottle of ink sat, and you had to fool with the pen to suck up the ink, but that changed in 5th grade. Was a poor school district.
