That's amazing.-Andi x Kelley July 20, 2010 at 8:08 am (11 years ago) >You neglected to warn us to "Grab Puffs plus lotion…" Nancy July 20, 2010 at 2:55 pm (11 years ago) >That letter really does tell a story. It actually reminds me of letters my husband gets from his grandmother…she never finished high school. I think it shows just how much education and our attitude towards it has changed. We don't have as many people leaving school in their early teens to get married and help out on the farm now, as was a common scenario in the early 20th century.
