I had to have been about 7 or 8 because my Mom died when I was six. My Dad had ration stamps for shoes but 4 little girls to buy shoes for. In those "old" days we knelt at the altar rail for communion at Mass. I did not realize that My dad had put playing cards in my shoes where the holes were and everyone saw the 6 of hearts. I was mortified at the time. Someone mentioned ration stamps in a poll and that reminded me of that incident.
Another time I was at my Aunt Bea's and she was baking and had one of those ironing boards that came out of the wall behind a door and when she opened it a mouse ran down and I jumped on the table and spilled 5# of sugar. She made me scoop up the clean part as there were no more stamps left. I was going to iron so I must have been about 10 at the time. To this day I hate mice.....they scare me to death Jackie
