Those Were the Days


One of the toughest years ever for America and people who work…it was the heart of the great depression.  Gas cost 10 cents a gallon and a years wages averaged about $1,500.  The cost of a new house was only $5,750 and a Plymouth 6 was only $445.  A loaf of bread was 7 cents, but if you couldn’t find work, it didn’t much matter.

Song of the Year was The Last Round Up by George Olsen.



Saying of the Week

You’re never too old to yearn.
