The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

How to wrap homemade bread

February 20, 2013
This is how I wrap my fresh homemade bread
I use a oversized kitchen cloth.  I found my cloths in the kitchen section of a large popular grocery/department store.  They are very durable for this purpose. You could make your own cloths but I like these because they are like an oversized cloth diaper.  They are a large bar cloth. 
The first thing I do is after I take the bread out of the oven I set the pan on a cooling rack.  Then I let it cool for about a half hour so it will moisten enough to release the bread from the pan.  Then turn out the bread on the cooling rack for at least another half hour to cool.
After the bread is cool I put the bread back in the pan.  Doing this prevents the bottom of the bread from becoming too moist and soggy.
Now I place the pan on the cloth
I place a sheet of wax paper over the pan
Then swaddle the pan by bringing one of the corners over the pan and the wax paper
Now pull the opposite side across
Now each end
now just snug it up and put it where you keep your bread.
It holds the wax paper in place and makes the bread stay just right and it is so easy to unwrap, slice and then swaddle it back.
Hope this is helpful, Grandma Donna
