To finish up the social history embedded in that Word packing list file from which I’ve never deleted anything (Packing Archeology, Dec 2012): We can cross off the sand toys. Nobody in the family young enough for that any more. I should also delete slips, though the word does bring back memories. I remember standing there and ironing rayon slips. At least there doesn’t seem any need to pack petticoats. If I remember right they didn’t last much beyond the ‘50s.Today the list contains items that weren’t even invented when it started. Don’t forget, it says, to take: cell phone, charger, and – talk about signs of the times –
hearing aid batteries, meds, folding cane, handicap parking sticker.
Don't know if you're old enough to remember this, but -- Time Marches On.
