Trot, you know that many of us cannot even begin to understand what life must have been like when food was so hard to get and scarce. I lived through hard times as a child, and I have heard many forum members speak of this in their lives too.
The stories that are told of the hard times that people have lived through make me feel ever so grateful for my cozy little life now. I am grateful for these stories, it really puts a lot of things into some spectacular perspective.
That mouse was amazing. Funny, that is a memory that made such an impact, you have never forgotten it. Great day. Cindi
