When I wads a youngster my oldman use to give me a $5 note and send me off to the shop........, i would come back with 4 lbs of flour, 3 loafes of bread,
2 gal. of milk,
1 doz. eggs,
2lbs of gouda,
a huge bag of sweets and treats,
1 1/2 lbs of ham,
and a couple of cokes.
That doesnt' happen anymore these days... there are way to many security cameras...
