|Uncle John's last wallet|
Somehing else was saved in his wallet that I have been waiting for the appropriate time to share here on the blog. This is a newspaper clipping from what was the Daily Dispatch in my old hometown of New Kensington, PA in 1951. Neither the gentleman nor the boy were identified. I know it was none of my family because of the ages. Uncle John may have known the culprits or more likely he found this amusing. We laughed at this and thought of several things, first that the man is referred to as "elderly." Really? Hey that's not that old! And that would not have been so easily resolved today--the parents would have been litigious and so it would have gone. But here is the 1951 newspaper clipping--say, that's another thing that is going the way of the wild goose, printed newspapers. Many of us read online and no longer subscribe to home delivery. We are hold outs here because Jerry likes the morning paper, sparse as it is, with his morning coffee, but I confess to going online and some days never touching the paper. Nevertheless, here is what happened in 1951 in Arnold, PA.
And all this is brought to you today courtesy of Uncle John's wallet in the antique dresser.
