Pit Bull love
The lard worked.I harbor a strong suspicion that the good old days weren’t all that good. To wit:
Some really ugly societal tendencies
Lard as a hair product
No air conditioning
Bad dental hygiene
Bad hygiene in general
Poor grasp of the germ theory of disease and/or food preparation
My food was good.
The fan sucked in hot, humid Summer. I’ll give you that.
We bathed or showered daily.
Limited media was better than the 24 hour news cycle. Walter Cronkite, Huntley-Brinkley still rule.
You get the societal change, too.
