Memory, A Simpler Time?
Memories of what a hard worker Mom was. That roaster on the utility shelf I know she had for many years, because even as teenager it's the one she used every Thanksgiving to cook the turkey in. She still used the shelf too. Here though, I believe it was used to cook a good many things, as I don't think she had an oven. From stories I remember her telling me, she cooked on a one burner hot plate and used the roaster in their first..maybe even the first couple of homes/apt's. That wooden ironing board is still one in my parents house. Mom's gone (4 years ago), and I don't think Dad has need of ironing; but it's still there and when she was living it was till in use.
Not sure what brother Chuck is playing with. Apparently, something came out of the box?
I also remember my cousin, Nancy (older then Chuck) telling me Mom had lots of sweaters when she was young and she liked to get into her sweater draw. Looks like she's wearing one in the picture. Also get a kick out of noticing the rolled up jeans........kids today think they've started a new trend...not so much, What goes round comes round.
People have fond memories and often refer to that bygone time as a simpler time. I don't think that's so, our lives today our more simple. It's far easier/simpler to do laundry now then it was then, likewise cooking with all our computerized fancy stoves etc. Simpler times? Hum
