I put this picture on my Facebook account for Throwback Thursday so thought I would put it here since I wasn't finished thinking about days gone by. First I don't remember who sent me the flowers, probably Mel but he usually just went to the grocery store and always bought yellow (his favorite color) Mums. The clock I got with trading stamps. I saved about three different kinds and got some nice gifts with them over the years. The little wooden Mexican bookends I bought in Mexico on my senior trip and I still have them. All the TVs had rabbit ears and we thought we were in high cotton when we bought this one and also the paneling. When I sold the house it was still in there and the young couple painted it white. You probably can't make it out, I just know it's there to the left is a gossip bench. Remember them? I got it with stamps too. Kind of like a desk with a seat and a little shelf for the black dial telephone (oh those days are gone forever). I still remember standing by that gossip bench when a friend called and said "are you sitting down?". I did sit down not knowing what was coming. It wasn't good news concerning herself. The hair is a hair piece that women wanted back then (probably the 70's). Okay gotta quit thinking of the past and get busy in the present.
