    When we got home Mom headed straight for the telephone. She said, “I want to catch your father before he leaves work. We need a loaf of bread for breakfast tomorrow.” She was lucky to get a line right away – we had a party line at the time - and she placed the call to...

    T Bar Sandals

    What a great story, reminds me so much of my childhood, especially when starting secondary school in 1972. Had not given a thought to my T bar sandals being "for girls" or sissy, I just found them very practical not to mention comfortable. The nearest I have had to having a pair...

    My Sandals Obsession Part 3 - Sears Again

    I put my J. C. Higgins bike (Dad worked for Sears so we always had Sears brands) in the back yard and went in the back door. The slamming of the back door announced my arrival, and Mom's call of “Don't slam the door!” was my greeting. She was already working on lunch, a...
