Now try not to faint, but I remember the Fourth of July celebrations that were small, but fun. Lots of food vendors and we used to buy Lobster “all you could eat” for $1.00 a plate. That’s right one dollar.
Of course the wages were considerable smaller. Although not that smaller.
My Step-Dad worked on the Railroad making peanuts for hard labor.
My husband’s family used to go down to the coast and purchase a washtub of Lobster and bring them home for a big cook out. We always dipped them in hot melted butter with a touch of lemon juice. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
Now go eat.
