If I ever got up and nothing hurts I will know I am dead! and when I told a young woman I had worked at Woolworth's 5&10 she asked what was a Woolworth's? The time my little Grand-Daughter found a Clothes Pin in my House and asked me what it was? All her life she never saw clothes hung out on a Clothes Line, they always used a Electric Dryer. FIDENCIA
