Good writing, Marilyn! Memories are the thread of life's tapestries, aren't they?

Marilyn, Thanks for the memory! I remember the ration books and the drawing in the courthouse for sacks of sugar. I was 4 or 5 when I drew names for free sugar; the courtroom was full! Everyone was very saving; nothing was wasted. When I think of those times I feel humbled and have an extra appreciation for buying everything needed in a well-stocked grocery store. Good story; keep up the writing. Your recollections are much appreciated!

Hi Marilyn: Thanks to Lucky for allowing you to post your personal memory story. I enjoyed it. I'm glad you have such a good recollection of a happy childhood birthday. It was also interesting for me to read history bits about my home sweet home town.
