We did a5 mile walk today. With the cooler weather we were able to add the forest loop back into our walk. On our return I grilled steak tips and made a salad from the garden. Today's garden haul including another wonderful sweet peach from my tree in the greenhouse. I'm going to make a fruit house next Spring and grow all my fruit in a greenhouse as the yield and lack of bad bugs is amazing.

"The Peoples Choice" was a show from 1955 staring Jackie Cooper and an adorable Basset, "Cleo". Why not?
Food ad from 1955, September. If you adjust for inflation $1 in 1955 is worth $8.90 today. So a sale price for women's shoes at $3.49 means they are $31.08. No wonder one had good shoes and work shoes and not a closet full of shoes. But the minimum wage in 1955 was $1.00 so that meant even the bagger at the grocery store was making the equivalent of $8.90 today.
