Speak to me of prizes, my response will be “Tupperware!”  Yes, the place to win the door prize for the evening.  Guaranteed.  Everybody gets a door prize.   Whoever ever bought a 3/16th teaspoon by itself.  You may have purchased two complete sets of measuring cups and lost the 3/16th size in both of them.  That is because it is the size you let your toddler play with because you have never seen a recipe calling for 1/3rd except for now. 

“Welcome, Ladies.  I am soooo glad you have come tonight.  You will not be pressured to buy, but we do want you to know what is available in Tupperware.  Buy or not, you will all take home an item of your personal choice.  The available items are on display on the hall table for your selection at the end of our presentation.”

…..If I would go check my junk drawer now, I could probably find a free bottle cap opener from my Tupperware days.  I was pretty “party” smart at game time.  Free Bottle Cap Opener to the winner.  If you want one but don’t want to run by my house to get one, go to Amazon where you can buy one for a measly thirty to fifty dollars.

Guess I’d better get mine out of the junk drawer and put it on my antique shelf.


Appreciation to Linda G. Hill for the SoCS prompt each Saturday. Great job of hosting, Linda, thank you.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    That’s funny! Yes, Tupperware was a big deal back then. I actually worked for Tupperware as an office worker, not a sales person. I’d take the orders and process them, run off newsletters on the mimeograph, and a lot of other office things. Fun times. 🙂

      Tupperware was the in thing. It was a good product. I guess it still is but I don’t buy much of anything now. My shelves are too full. At least the ones I can reach are.
