Oh, how we look back on past times as "the simpler life" without all these darn rules and regulations that the bloated Federal government (illegally, mind you - Congress is authorized to pass law - not individual agencies) lays upon us. Let's travel back to days gone by...
With a SEARS CATALOGUE! Yep, that old toilet paper stand-in, from 1934, when probably quite a few people still used outhouses out in the country.
You can page through it's glory here > http://www.lileks.com/30s/sears1934/index.html I'm up past page 84.
This is a great sucker-up of your time however, as I preheated the oven, but forgot to put the cottage pie in the oven to bake for when hubby got home from work last night. The commentary at the bottom of each page is pretty darn good too...especially on the mineral oil (not a laxative!) page.
Don't know if I've blogged about this before, but if I did, I apologize. This is just interesting, looking at the prices, the items offered, and a bit of history.
