Was this photo taken about the time you stopped growing? Seriously adorable. Happy Birthday later this week, girlfriend. Loved the post. It was a huge deal for us to go to the dime store (mainly because we had to go to the next town to do so and we rarely did that).

Ha! Thanks my sistah! EGAD! 50 years old! When did that happen? And why am I not wiser? I thought I would know everything by now:)

Too cool. I wish I had encountered a dime store as a kid. Reminds me of the scene in O Brother when Everett and Delmar are kicked out of one: "And stay outta the Woolsworth!" And later: "Everett I don't know, was it just the one or the whole chain?" <3

Oh my goodness, Kacey! Those are some of our favorite lines from O Brother! Sometimes, when I'm telling Dave something I need him to do, I'll add on "And stay outta the Woolworth's!" Nanci Griffith does this great recitation about Woolworth stores in a song called "Love at the Five and Dime")--she says they all have the same wonderful smell "like popcorn and chewing gum rubbed around together on the bottom of a leather-sole shoe." :)
