Change – Change – Change
Since Grandpa and Grandma made no diary entries on June 13, I searched for items of change — thought I would look for some changes in expenditures: “Jan 18 1900 Bought overshoes for 75 cents.” Jan 20 1900 ” Bought brush for 25 cents, soap for 5 cents, shoe tacks for 10 cents” Feb 3 1900 “Paid 20 cents to get hair cut, 25 cents for coal, bought suit for $9.00 and hat for $1.00”
I have 2 thoughts for you to ponder:
1. When you went to Wal-Mart today how much did you pay for shoe-tacks and coal?
2. My keyboard has a dollar sign($) but no cent sign — question: why is that so? Grandpa’s keyboard must to had one — at least his diary entry did show the “cent”sign.
Yesterday I tried to show the mood of a foggy day on the Island. After the rain and fog, today my goal, is to show the change that has been made — the result is a bright last evening and bright this morning.
That is it for today — After the rain and fog, I must get my act together and pull weeds, mow the paddock, trim the lawn, repair the driveway, clean the debris from the porch — all because of that “beautiful rain and fog.”
