  1. PERFECT!!! Again, you’ve captured the the spirit of the day. It reminds of the Isle of Wight Museum’s Country Store too. Love the family tie in.

  2. This poem was perfect!
    Well done. Brought back memories.

  3. Great poem – just the right “flavor” for the photo too. They were the good old days – you could count on getting the things you needed whether you had the money for them or not….pay when you can….trust….true caring. Yep – good old days indeed.
