Fun Trip Down Memory Lane

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I received a gift certificate to the local bakery for Bosses’ Day and decided to go there for lunch with the 8th grade student that I’m a mentor for. After a sandwich and dessert, we decided to browse in a couple of the antique stores downtown. One sign read, “We buy junk and sell antiques.” I saw many things that I’m sure my family threw out that are now treasures. It was a fun trip down memory lane. Robert was most fascinated by the old telephones that you had to crank to get the operator’s attention.

  1. Memories..OH YEAH..! You probably don’t remember when we all had party lines…Whoa, Nellie ! THAT was fun !
    One lunchtime, my grandfather’s secretary called him at home about some business, and my grandmother chopped the phone out of the wall with an axe. Shortly after that, he sold his insurance business and opened an antique store, where my grandmother worked with him. She was Irish…
    And those were the days..!
