Now for my pennyworthy.......

I was a child through rationing, but well remember my mother feeling sorry
for relatives in England who complained bitterly about their shortages, and
asking if there was anything she could send them. Yes, please, was the
reply, we only get ....amount of tea per person per month. It was already
more than my parents were getting here, so they didn't get any. I also
remember the consequences of my young brother devouring 1/2 lb of butter,
such precious stuff it was too!
