LETTER: Liked Earline’s column
Congratulations to Earline Byers!
She hit the nail right on the head with this weeks "special"
Think it is an age thing---the "now" generation moves too much to be the collectors that "we" are. If they don't wear it for a few months they throw it away. If I did that I'd need it the week after I threw it away.
I did brave it this year and "Goodwilled” a pair of pants with the tags still on them---from Burien’s Lamonts--a long time ago. Luckily I "undergrew" them-- not the reverse.
I've lived in my house since l962 and I probably have saved newspaper articles that date back that far. My poor kids when I pass on! "What did she save those for?" Maybe I should join the "Messies Anonymous." Have a few friends that meet the requirements too.
Too bad the "now" generation isn't as frugal as "us." Of course, I think they have more space in their closets then we do. In my case it's the attic and the garage too. Again---thanks for the smile.
