These are Aunt Mary's aprons which were on display at the Hurt Reunion. Under each framed apron was a note with some rather cute remarks.
Aunt Mary was Grandma Mamie's sister. Mamie was the oldest of the children and all the other children had middle names but not her.
If you are gonna "Aunt Mary" an object means you will each the worse fruit first in order to be thrifty. Thrift is a good thing but it can also keep you from enjoying the best fruit first. Such was the case with our Aunt Mary.
The kitty justice is sometimes you can be toooooooo THRIFTY. Too bad the young folks of today don't have just a pinch of Aunt Mary in them.
PS The cable company was down over 5 hours yesterday and when it went down, well this post was consumed except the pictures were saved.
