It was an old Singer pedal sewing machine, and mama could make it do a seam fast. Then dad converted it to an electric, and she could make it fly. I loved to watch her and was fascinated how it seemed every thing was sewn inside out. Oh yes, and little Jackie could get his fingers mashed under that foot treadle several times. Mama’s chicken feed sacks and Dad’s Hog Mash sacks became shirts and dresses.
Shirl probably did not get a store bought dress until she was in upper elementary school (now Jr. Hi ) .
There wasn’t piles of dollar bills around our house, but I noticed when money was being counted George Washington was always facing the same way in the stacks. So I learned that at home. Later when I started doing business at a bank (cashing my pay check), every bill was stacked with the person’s face up and always the same direction.
The military paid in cash when I joined. Every bill was facing the same way. Now that is not a life shaking thing, the money will spend upside down and backwards, but it was the discipline.
We do a lot of business at ATM’s. The bills are not stacked the same there now. To Sherry’s chagrin, I talk to the machine. I feel sorry for the little person in her counting that money. It is probably dark and they can’t keep the bills straight. I always say good morning or evening and when leaving I wish them a great day inside there. Sherry thinks there is no one in there,BUT I KNOW BETTER!
I also notice COFFEE…. I drink it black the way God created it. My son (and my wife) loves Starbucks, I like their coffee too, but not the fancy smancy stuff. Iced Coffee? are you crazy. Whipped cream, streaming chocolate or caramel over the top, THAT AIN’T COFFEE! JMHO…..
Okay so as you have guessed I am catching up a little more. Light is at the end of the tunnel (Hoping it is hot the light of an engine).
Thanks for coming by the log.
PS: It is never my intention to hurt anyone’s feelings. If I have I am truly sorry. As I have stated many times, I do not delete comments (Except the adds for porno, when I know about them) good or bad. I Also realize we all have opinions…..
I like a statement I read once, “But if I agreed with you , we would both be wrong!”
I cannot imagine seeing this in 1925.
