Cactus Jack Calder Posted March 28 Share Posted March 28 (edited) When I was a mere child we had one of those toasters. I believe it had four sides to toast bread, but my memory may be faulty on that detail. The thing I remember most about that toaster is that during a visit by my mother’s parents the bread was burned. My Grandma said “Oh, that’s alright I’ll just scrape it off.” My Mother exasperated with the toaster ,or her Mother, said “No”, and flung the offending slice across the dining room into the kitchen sink. There was complete silence for several seconds, then Dad just reached over and put in another slice of bread as if nothing had happened. That made quite an impression on a 5 year old, me. My Mother was a loving and kind person. I really have no idea what set her off that day. Just goes to show, everyone can have a bad day once in a while. CJ While just living in the memory I hadn’t realized. That had to be 73 years ago. A memory as vivid as if it happened last week.
