When I was growing up things were ordered from a catalog: “SEARS AND ROEBUCK”, mom even ordered her ‘dibbies’ (chickens) thru the catalog.
Sherry noticed a receipt on the table, automatically she laughed and asked, ‘What now?’ Of course that time it was what she wanted, the oven. We picked it up and it is installed. Less than a week: order from Texas, truck freight to here and now I have it installed and ready for corn bread!
WE went from this:
(The thing hanging on the door is our ‘Drying Rag’. haha)
We both like to have an oven. Even though we don’t use it that much, we prefer it to the noisy Convection oven!
Plus the convection oven likes to have too many instructions and buttons punched before it will start to reach 350 or 425 degrees.
(This is our Kitchen now, the biggest deal was losing, two drawers, VERY important to us in the motor home)
Now with my hearing gone, I would rather shop via internet. Not only is it simpler, I don’t have to deal with misunderstandings. Like a day or so ago:
…… We met our friends the Carters for lunch. After lunch Sherry and Juanita took their car and left, Wayne and I went to Lowes where I bought a 10’ 2x4 I needed. Then I headed for his house (5 miles away). ‘Where are you going Jack?’ Wayne asked.
“To your house for coffee!” I answered to him like he was a kid and a little thick, hahahaha.
“The girls are at YOUR house!”
I done a ‘U’ turn and headed to our motor home,(20 miles away) knowing all the time the girls would not be here, BUT THEY WERE! I misunderstand a lot of things and sometimes get in trouble for it. HA!
BUT then everyone gets a good laugh.
Like the time we are in the Dr’s. office, he said something and walked out. I undone my belt and dropped my pants. Sherry looks at me like I am crazy,’What are you doing?’
‘I am doing just what he said, dropping my pants!’
“huh uh, all he said was things are okay, I will be right back!”
Fortunately I got my pants back on before he came back. I am a very entertaining guy!!! Folks get a lot of laughs. I think it is good to spread smiles and happiness. (No I have never done that at the Mall, before you ask!!!)
Martha got a kick out of that one! But then she loved me.
Go ahead, Drop you pants, I’ll be right back!!!!!
Thanks for reading this stuff.

This is a Chrysler Thunderbolt (1941), that never made the major production lines.
The Kaiser/Frazer looked something like this just a litle later.
