Random Item of the Day

This funky little item is probably older than I am. I know, it hardly seems possible.

It's a notepad holder. They used to make - perhaps they still do - little "Just the Facts, Ma'am" notepads that slid right into them. My mom used them for grocery lists, "Be home soon" notes, etc.

Now in modern times, Post-it's fit perfectly! This used to sit right next to the telephone but now we no longer have a landline. So it's slowly becoming dead technology.

My mom used to have one of these but I don't know what ever happened to it. This one I inherited from my great aunt's house. She had a few of them and now I wish I'd kept all of them. Somewhere in this house, there is a little pen that attached to the side.

So, if you see one of these, now you'll know what they are and how you can use them!!
