To be fair it was only yesterday.

They are ceasing use of plastic bags here as well, something about it being detrimental to dolphins. They may be right as there hasn't been any dolphins here for the better part of a million years.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

Sure. And milk in bottles delivered to the home. Then in waxed paper half gallon containers at the store with flap opening centered on one side at the top (they always dribbled) , and so on.

And the S&H green stamps...

My first bow came via S&H green stamps... 45# Bear recurve. I know folks don't think too much of Bear bows. But it kept me interested in archery for a long time.

there was blue horse stamps too. came on notebook paper & such.

Yes. Like my asking my dad why they didn't buy north Phoenix/Scottsdale land when it was 50 cents an acre. Classic response, "Didn't have the fifty cents".

I remember the milk in glass bottles well . . . rode the delivery truck with my Dad numerous times when I was a wee lad.
