Message in a Bottle

Now as you know I've been clearing out the attic and rediscovered  a pair of these beautiful, little, stoneware condiment jugs bought years ago, for a song.

I was never able to use them for their real purpose as their corks had been pushed through into the body of the jugs.

today I attempted to extract the corks using a pair of long pointy tweezers and discovered a little rolled up parcel of fragile, stained papers.

Postal Order receipts from way back, when folk  used 'old money' and credit cards were just a twinkle in the eyes of bankers.

When words had totally different meanings.

Just love the innocence of this quote!
