everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 06/07/17 - "Eating in the 50's":

So very true....


EATING IN THE FIFTIES

Pasta had not been invented. It was macaroni or spaghetti.
Curry was a surname.
Taco? Never saw one till I was 15.
Pizza? Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere.
Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time.
All chips were plain.
Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking.
Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green.
Cubed sugar was regarded as posh.
Chickens didn't have fingers in those days.
None of us had ever heard of yogurt.
Healthy food consisted of anything edible!
Cooking outside was called camping.
Seaweed was not a recognized food.
'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food.
Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.
Prunes were medicinal and stewed.
Surprisingly, Muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed.
Pineapples came in chunks or were round with a hole in the middle, in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one.
Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it, they would have become a laughing stock.
There were three things that we never ever had on/at our table in the fifties - elbows, hats and cell phones!

.........and there were always two choices for each meal...

"Take it" or "Leave it."

  
OHHHH, YES! Thanks so much, Wayne! So often these days I feel like an alien in my own country, especially when pertaining to food.


 From My Cousin, Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS - '77) of AZ, Sonoran Pronghorn Recovery Coordinator at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - 06/07/17:
 

   Thanks, Cousin Jim!

Count Every Star

Written by Bruno Coquatrix (05 Aug 1910 - 01 Apr 1979), Sammy Gallop (16 Mar 1915 - 24 Feb 1971), 1950

Recorded by Linda Scott (b. 01 June 1945), 1962


Count every star in the midnight sky
Count every rose, every firefly
For that's how many times I miss you
Heaven knows I miss you

Count every leaf on a willow tree
Count every wave on a stormy sea
Count every star and darling when you do
You'll know the times I have cried for you

Count every leaf on a willow tree
Count every wave on a stormy sea
Count every star and darling when you do
You'll know the times I have cried for you
