Short Post

It's late and I don't have any noteworthy observations, reflections or questions. I have been getting fishing hardware together in anticipation of 4 July guests. One of the old reels, a Shakespeare spin cast, dates from 1959 and sold then for 24.95. What's that in today's dollars? When Mary and I were in college days in the early seventies, you could buy a Taco Bell burrito for a quarter. When I was a kid in the late 60s, we'd buy a basket of fried shrimp and fries at a place called "59". Guess how much the basket cost. And the last blast from the past; Mary and I rented our first apartment in Austin, Texas for $100 a month.

More meaningful blogs to come!
