One dollar was not a pittance back then.

20 1950s sized candy bars and 2 to four Saturday matinees.

It breaks my heart to see what is going on in my own little town.

My husband and I look for work around our home for out-of-work people. So far, we'e gotten beautiful custom valances, new cabinets and countertops in our laundry room, and a lot of odd jobs around the house done that we really needed help on.

We were born into the Great Depression and know how such situations are both degrading and humiliating. What makes me extremely angry is that it was all avoidable - then and now.
