I wondered where to get one of those!

I loved Aunt Betty so much. I really enjoyed getting to know her. One of the things that would make me smile was the generation gap between us. I know that I am a saver, but she NEVER threw stuff away if it still had a use! Now, as a number cruncher, she was incredibly organized. Her house was not overrun with junk, but the things that she saved were filed, labeled and put away. When she passed away it was very sad to go into her room at the nursing home and clean things out...I did smile though when I opened her drawer and pulled out this wrapper filled with cups. You see, she hated using the cups from the nursing home because she thought they were filled with germs, so I would bring her disposable cups. In order to keep them neat in her bedside drawer she would take a few out of the big package and put them in this little plastic sleeve from a smaller package. I started laughing when I actually read the printing on the plastic and knew I had to share this fun memory with you. Look at the printing.....at first, nothing strange...

Okay, excuse the fact that I took the picture upside down, at first it looks like a normal plastic bag.....Then look at the corner below. I wondered where in the world I could still get those! :-)

Yay! Now I know what to get y'all for Christmas...Who wants Rick Springfield? And under the Dora Hall section what the heck is tramping?

Rick Springfield was just on a re-run episode of Oprah. Maybe he's making a comeback and that LP could be worth a few? HA HA! I loved Aunty Betty and will miss our visits with her and Burt when we come to town.

I'll take mine in either form. I still have a record player and a cassette player and a VHS player. I'm ready for anything except the new HDTV tv's. This is a cute post!
