Friendship improves happiness and relieves misery by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief.

Here's a picture of antique scales I have. It has nothing to do with my chilehood memories, but it brings back memories of the first job I had after high school. I worked at F. W. Woolworth 5 and 10 cent store behind the candy counter. The scales were something like this. I remember chocolate covered p-nuts were 59 cents a lb. Cashews (hot) were $1.59 a lb. There were a lot in a lb. too. I wish they were that cheap today. I remember cooking the cashews and when they came out of the cooker you could smell them all over the store. My wages were $18.00 a week and I had more money than I do now. I remember the first payday I ever recieved....I gave my Daddy two dollars and I think he still had that two dollars in his wallet when he died ....about fifty years later. Do any of you remember F. W. Woolworth's? I wish it was still in existence.
