    Karmic wheel intact and rolling!

    Sometimes, I think if it weren't for those Depression gals, we'd already be on the far side of Hell. Between helping families survive the world economic collapse, to war work and even military service (R.I.P. Cpl. momlabradog, RAF), they didn't break the glass ceiling - the reality of survival demanded that they ignore it. No accident that the Depression generation is the one that raised so many feminists, male and female.

    And you just gotta know that somewhere in OK, an old gal with a terrier has shown up at an aid facility or shelter, and said "Alright, how can I help?"

      during the's hard to believe but if she' s 80 she was born in 1933, at the height of the Depression.

      Those folks that you are thinking of are mostly, sadly, gone. Those that were "helping famlies survive the world economic colapse", ie adults in the 1930s, were born in the 10s at the latest and are 100 years old. I guess she could be that old.

      Not meaning to make you wrong just pointing out the sobering realization that this generation is passing. (My mom died ten years ago and would be 80 this yr )Hard to believe I know. And your point is sound...even being a child during the Depression surely instilled thrift, perseverance, and a pitching-in community spirit. My mother was that way and passed on those values to her children even though she was only a child herself during the Depression.
