I left my heart in San Fransico! We got married 46 years ago in San Fransico and lived there for a year in a studio apt. with a "Murphy bed". We could see Golden Gate Park from our window. We took the trolley every Saturday to go downtown WINDOW SHOPPING, which was a favorite pastime of many who lived in San Fransico (before street people were all over). We were not able to go on a honeymoon, but who needed it in The City by the Bay. My husband found our apt. and it was wonderful for our budget. We figure it would be right up there in "barely affordable" now. We moved back to the Midwest a year later and have always known that was good for us to do, NEVERTHELESS, we feel very fortunate that we had that wonderful experience the first year of our married life. OH SIGH!

SHOWER CURTAIN. We bought a fabric shower curtain like the ones used in hotels - no plastic liner, just the curtain. Made out of the same kind of stuff parachutes are made of. The curtain gets wet, but the water does not get out. AAANNDDD, the curtain and the tub/shower dry great - no mold/mildew. Another big plus - easy to throw in the wash.

All our children are grown now and they still talk about some of the movies we "made" them watch. We would get the black & white Fred Astaire movies, some swashbuckling movies and others -all in black & white and tell them they only had to watch for 15 minutes. Guess what!!? Not ONCE did they ever get up & walk away. BY THE WAY, "Singin In the Rain" just had it's 60th anniversary. Loved reading the story and all the posts! Thanks.
