Retro Tuesday All Week Long

Please visit The Crazy Suburban Mom for Retro Tuesday All Week Long. This is a wonderful blog and I love Retro Tuesday.

I have always loved this meme and this is the first time I finally got something together that I hope fits in with it. On a recent visit to an apple orchard I found some wonderful things in the barn with the cider and donuts. We devoured the donuts and then took some pictures
~~
The first one is retro in that, it has been many many years since my butt could fit in one of these school desks.
All kinds of old tools on the walls, because I am somewhat clumsy, that is as close as I want to get to those saws.
I wonder if this became obsolete when gas prices went up.



This old stove really intrigued me. I love to cook and bake and just imagining what must have come out of those doors. Homemade breads, cakes, cookies, raccoons. I especially loved the setting on the stove. Set it and good luck lol.


Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

While attending a Marriage Encounter weekend, Tom and his wife Charlotte listened to the instructor declare, 'It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.'He addressed the men, 'Can you name and describe your wife's favorite flower?'Tom leaned over, touched Charlotte 's arm gently and whispered, 'It's Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn't it?

'And thus began Tom's life of celibacy

Have a great week. Anne

I love all the retro items, I have a few things along those lines myself. The stove is my favorite, talk about guess work!

I am going to make sure my hubby see this joke, he's probably wondering why I'm laughing right now!
