Polls opened at 7. There was already a line when I arrived at 6:57.
I wore my Grand Old Flag socks.
I thought of all those who came before me, my great grandmothers who weren’t allowed to vote, how others fought and died (and are still) to give me this right.
I am grateful.
Wondering what year they packaged in this wrapper? Maybe an updated version is available in the grocery store, I will check. You can buy it online. It was heralded as a stress reliever and solution to a woman feeling overwhelmed by her life. “Calgon, take me away!”
Our custodian, Dan, found a case of this product and not sure what year the packaging is from. I meant to look and see if it had a zip code on it as I used to find items in the art room pre 1964 without a zip code. They still sell this stuff when I went to look it up in a search. I guess I am out of touch.
At first I thought this was just for the washing machine but it says “bathtub ring’ .
Here is one vintage commercial touting a similar product that is sure to offend someone with the retro thinking.
Not sure if anyone is still trying to get taken away with Calgon bath but here is one old TV commercial. There is another that is totally non PC that may come to your min and is on YouTube but I won’t link it.
Seaside FL (no I am not there now, from the archives) You know how difficult I find street photography. These women didn’t notice me and my camera. Here’s what I saw……
A couple of women and some crochet cotton, one stitching as fast as she could. The one looks like she’s holding something that is being undone and recrocheted by the woman on the right. The line of thread between the two looks like it was just unraveled from having been stitched previously.
I wish I’d asked what the story was, what she was making. And why right there on the sidewalk? Standing up?
Someone just recommended to me that I try to knit standing up, be easier on my neck, and I thought, impossible. I was in FL a couple of years ago with good friends Shuey and Connie and we were touring around, seeing where the Truman Show was filmed and the market with the most jams and preserves I’ve ever seen, floor to ceiling.
