Memory of Mama

This is a little note from facebook a couple of years ago.

I found a note that Mama wrote, listing her utility bills with the amounts in 1978, when she and Daddy were living at 1022 Pennock, in Papa Oeser's old house. In May, she wrote, telephone 11.50; gas 7.34; paperboy 7.28; lights 14.68 and water 7.19. Did anyone else say light bill, instead of electric bill? When mama was young, lights were about all that used electricity in a house. Not much more than that when I was a kid. We had a TV, a radio and a refrigerator, and in summer, window fans. Our cook stove and heat used gas.
