Inspiring Depression Era Book- "We Had Everything But Money"
Inspiring Depression Era Book-
I stumbled on to this book, We Had Everything But Money so I might order it! Here's a little snippet from the book:
One Sunday we wanted to take our new baby to see her grandma, but we didn't have the 25¢ needed to buy a gallon of gas.
We did have hens, though, and 11 eggs. At that time, eggs sold for 25¢ a dozen. So we all got dressed up, and then we sat and waited for one of the hens to lay an egg! Finally one of then cackled, my husband put that egg with the 11 others, we took them to the store and exchanged them for a gallon of gas. Off we went to see Grandma!
How great is that!
