leave a comment »

. . .you ever had?

was a question I asked at my most recent Flashbacks session.

. . . that explains why

The early human who introduced this transportation innovation

saw that his wife had it wired up as a lamp.

and they have to turn to Good Housekeeping

some good old-fashioned Country Living with People.
