Of course I can!
It is no secret that I am a WWII propaganda fiend. I love that thrift was once so commonplace that anything else was deemed unpatriotic. I believe most problems Americans face can be solved, or at least relieved, by historical advice. Take this poster-
Every diet I have ever read about can be summed up by this patriotic advice.
I was blessed to stay with Spencer’s cousins while student teaching. Molly and Mel are great mentors for Spencer and I. Leaving their home was bittersweet because I had so much fun with them and they are my last college roommates. I am excited to return to the home that I share with Spencer, but having roommates is a lot of fun.
I was treated to dinner out on my last evening in Des Moines. Mel loves WWII history and knew just what to get for a parting gift.
Only Mel would know what I mean when I say my kitchen has a “pre-WWII vegetables and zinc lid jar theme.”
He put them in modern enameled frames so they would go well with the popular Fiestaware colors. I am quite pleased with how well they coordinate with my new-to-me Pyrex mixing bowls from Spencer.
It is ironic that an old soul like me is having such a hard time growing up. I will miss my roommates and think of their thoughtful advice often. I look forward to them visiting for cards night and seeing the posters in person!
