Tonight, because of all the bad weather we're having the loss of lights is heavy on my mind, I just hate it when the lights go off...lol..I am a 65 year young Lady who has never once in my entire life slept in the dark...ok, ok, so I'm a big chicken,...lol...but now remember I was raised in New Orleans where there were street lights at night that shown bright into the house. When we moved to the farm house, we had electric lights, some of the first in our area, I must say...and we always had a night light for Shirley, then I got married and we lived in town, street lights again
:-) , then the kids came along and we keep a night light on for them, by then I was hooked...the lights go off and I freak out...lol..DH knows to find that lamp quick. He keeps a flash light by the bed....poor D, he puts up with alot.
OK, you say, what does this have to do with VTT, well my VT is my kerosene lamps, 4 of them to be exact. The are very old so they fit this post just fine....This little beauty belonged to my MIL, she had it ever since she got married in 1938, you can tell these are used because I need to clean the soot from the last outage...This one belonged to my Mom, I remember using it when I was a teenager. She gave it to me right after I had Chuck, before she moved to TX.This little pair I bought in the late 70's, when a local Drug Store was selling out and they were marked down to 75% off, see I've always been a bargin hunter. These hung on my bedroom wall for years until I knocked the one on the right off while dusting them and broke the base. (can't you tell how lopsided it is) believe it or not that heavy base broke when it hit the floor, but the globe landed on the bed and didn't even crack. I decided to paint them and just use them for decoration, but if I get desperate enough I will use the one on the left to see by...lol...
