You know you're old when you learned to sew on this:

I adore wood burning, old fashioned stoves like this, the more chrome (?) the better. Water heater in the side.

My Icelandic grandma in Sask could turn out bread loaves to swoon over, time after time. What a mystery, as how do you regulate temperature? :200: Just through trial and error and many years experience possibly.

What would I give for one loaf now?
nothing wrong with being open minded as long as your brains don't fall out.

We have the cabinet for a "White" sewing machine but no machine just the cabinet.

You know you are old when peanuts were allowed in your lunch at school, and peanut butter cookies too.

If this was the Family bathtub.
And the lovely process of taking turns in the same water.
Water heated on the wood stove.

Pull the tub out once a week, drop it on the floor of the cold old mud room....
6-8 people have their baths....same water...

My Pap usually last...Never really thought about it till now...No wonder he hated bathing right to the end.

There was a smaller one for the kids - you know the saying "don't throw the baby out with the bath water".

You know you're getting old, when you pull up to a stop sign, and stay there waiting for the light to turn green. [icon_lol2.gif]

Probably wasn't a stop sign - might have been someone holding this:

There is a spot you could write your own message - guy probably wrote STOP and didn't flip it to read GO

Is that wrong?

You know that going to the lab after a fast in the morning, usually has a long line-up of others in your age group.

You know that you are getting old when.....

A "screw" was just a screw.

Being "gay" meant that you were happy.

Pot was something you cook in.

Coke was just a soda drink.

Pop, was what you called Dad.

A buck was a male deer.

When you heard a gunshot on the back porch, you immediately started thinking about what we are going to have for supper tonight.
