Was doing some hand sewing the other day and I needed a certain color, so I went to my sewing basket and sure enough I had the right color and it was a wooden spool and the price was marked 15. I dont know how old it was, but I do know a spool of thread is about ten times that now and it comes on plastic spools. I have been saving my empty spools thinking someday I might have a cute shelf made out of all my spools, but its just a thought now. I would have to mix the wooden and plastic and dont know how that would look, and they all are a different size - maybe Ill just forget it.

More people might live to a ripe old age, if they werent working so hard providing for it.
Glasses have an amazing effect on vision - especially after they have been filled several times.
A reckless driver is one who passes you on the highway in spite of all you can do.
