I have been riding motorcycles my whole life and I remember a world before helmet laws and I remember hitting a button on the floor board to change from high to low beam on the car.

I’ve heard of the clothes in the freezer, but never knew anyone who did that. Still used powdered starch flakes to starch petticoats, until the spray came along. We had a unit where you poured water into the back, turned that on, but it didn’t really cool well, once the temp was over 80. Had bigger dinner on Sunday, not always chicken but always dessert.....ice cream.

Did anyone else have a mother who put a bag of starched clothes in the freezer for later ironing? Water fans? And Sunday Chicken dinners?

Have you ever wished for different?

No car seats or seat belts - climbing over the front seat to sit on Mom's lap - climbing into the station wagon's rear seat and begging Dad to roll down the window so my sister and I could hang out and wave to people, or put our feet up (and he did!).

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

My mom would write checks at the store and not have to show any ID. She still tells the story that when TG&Y added a policy that they had to see your driver's license, the cashier appologized, but still had to see the ID.

After my husband passed away, I found 2 packs of new handkerchiefs in the bottom of his dresser, from years ago, lol. My grandson asked, “ what are those for”? Had to explain, he found it hard to understand. Times change😊

My grandmother had the big, dedicated pot. Hot water, detergent, and bleach.

So after I posted the other day, guess what DH was using?!! Yep, a handkerchief. I guess nothing else will do during allergy season!
