Happy birthday to my little sister, dear pal, and all-around great person! Hope your day is full of family and fun and that you got a good report on your knee recovery. Love you, doll!

In 1950, you could order a "Readi-Cut House" from the Aladdin Com. of Bay City, Michigan. $1492.00 got you a five room house and "every hour you can put in on the construction of your Aladdin home means a saving to you of from $2.00 to $3.00 per hour on its cost."
A house-by-numbers, that's my skill level. And I figure my labor is worth just about $3.00/hour based on my skill sets.

I found Tony's third grade journal the other day. We died. Here are some excerpts:
"Resolution. Not to be mean to my sisters. Do not tatol (tattle). Eating better. Brushing my teeth. Cleaning my room. Not littering. To take care of my pets and feed them more often." Except for tatoling, he could have written this list yesterday ;-)
"Report Cards. My social behavior is not that good...this is not a good year for me...avencholey I will improve with my behavior and my work and get a good report card hopfuley." Lol, he did avencholey get better.
We have NO idea what this assignment was, but Mrs Clemons gave him a "great!" For it:
"Flag, McDonald's,tolite, red white blue,woods, corn, ships, TCBY,fish, showers, Toad, pool, camping, guns, books, wars, sclogers, plains, stachyous of the solgers that foght in the war, war, being free, the first cookies, the revoulishinary war, the White huse, Washington, river, Spokane, NASA, English, clothes"
Just what WERE " the first cookies"? It's a mystery...
