146- A RELIC FROM THE 1950s---LAYAWAYS--ARE BACK THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON!.....

A 'social commentary'...layaways from the '50s are back and strong this upcoming Christmas season! Wonder why? If you've NEVER had a layaway, raise your hand?...no one?
I began, as a kid, collecting miniatures of all kinds, and would pay for them on the layaway system...a little bit at a time, delivering newspapers and then working at a small grocery store chain. Let's see: whales with a calf...covered bridges...diners...detailed animals of the world...elephants...Santa Claus...birds...anything farm...only lighthouses with snow....
