Its wonderful to see where these threads go. I learn so much just reading them. I try to read them all because even tho the title may not interest me, the thread drift is most times very interesting. Keep it up.

The cook book and advice for housekeepers is a classic. My favorite book in the series is the "Mechanics Handbook and Horsekeeping".
The chapeter on farm repairs states " tighten the nuts on the wagon daily but not the horse"

Mmmm, chocklate gravey over biskets.

I would not let kids ride on the running boards on my T! Never! If its ok with the parent and they have a place to sit then pile in. Let kids be kids. My grandkids even ride bikes with no helmet or bubble wrap.

Rich, that is how building codes came to be. The two story outhouse looked good on paper but not after the paperwork was submitted. I have built outhouses and the only thing required at the time was a basement and a few sears catologs.

Lucky rabbits foot? I think not. The rabbits had 4 each and look at their luck. I think " nothing to stew about" was recorded on the victor label. Original adds show a rabbit looking into the megaphone but changed to the dog after he ate the rabbit.
