"It was the best of times; it was the worst of times."
WWII was so terrible, and yet those I have spoken with who lived through the Depression and the war said those were actually the happier days of their lives, hard as they were. Things mattered, they said. Little things, things within most people's reach. Thriftiness, making do. Growing some foods in a garden. Now, a person is likely to be sued by a neighbor who might not like the sight of corn tassels in yer yard. Strange times.
Meant to put up a post about using picnik.com, but lightning put the quietus on that for now. Got to just slap up something I have ready.
