Remember When 

Junk

 


My last week presented me the occasion to rummage through stored “junk.”

Remember, one man’s junk is another man’s treasurer. Anyway, this prompted more “does anyone remember” thoughts.

Do any of you cowboys remember saddle cinches made with fish cord? Remember the heft of the old grain buckets and oil cans? With them being made in the USA and when comparing them to the weight of the same items today, the purchasers were probably getting their money’s worth.

On to household goods. Remember canning jars with the same small top as the Crisco jar I mentioned in an early article? Whatever was preserved in a jar with that small of an opening?

Then there were hash knives. Remember those? Or for that matter, remember when “hash” was a weekly meal?
