Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

What is it Wednesday

Welcome to another what is it Wednesday.  Today I have some great toys from the late 50's and early 60's.  The small rolling pin came in a baking set from Santa.  The copper pan was something my mother sent away for, from some copper cleaner company.  The toy cars where found in my backyard.  They are in good shape for being burried in the dirt for over 20 years.  The date of the cars are on the  plates, 1956.  All the toys where made in the US and no one worried about lead in the toys.  This Christmas season stop by an antique store and take a look at the toys, and bring home some memories of your childhood.  Great stories to share with your children and grandchildren.

I imagine my brother's old toys like these are buried in the dirt now. I remember them though. Thanks for sharing Rose:)
