Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?
Oh my goodness! I can still remember when we made our own bread and sliced it ourselves! Well, I’m not quite that old and sliced bread was available, but homemade bread was much better. I can appreciate the convenience of sliced bread and all the conveniences that have come along since 1960. We’ve come a long way, baby!
I spent a lot of time at my maternal and paternal grandparents homes while growing up. I would spends weeks with each one during the summers. They all still lived in the country at that time and farmed. I remember washing clothes in old wringer washers and hanging them on a line to dry. http://ts3.mm.bing.net/th?id=H.4672083495553310&pid=15.1

I think the indoor toilet is the best thing since sliced bread! http://ts4.mm.bing.net/th?id=H.4891152555247867&pid=15.1
