  2. Well, there goes the theory that it's dangerous to use aluminum pots!  She lived to be 95, or close to it, was still using aluminum and still had all her faculties and physical abilities, from the looks of it!

  3. My Dad told us all about some of the meals they had back then and was telling us how they ate a lot of cornbread and molasses…his Mom would either mix and egg into the molasses or butter, depending on what she had the most of…of course they raised their own chickens and cows too, so that helped with food for them too. They were poor though and lived over in the eastern part of Kentucky…Dad's father had died when he was just 4, so back then most women would marry again, if for no other reason than someone to help them raise all their children, so his mom did remarry a year or so after losing that first husband.
