Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
There was no such thing as store bought cookies in the Myers household, except for a few special treats...like Wagon Wheels or chocolate Jet Puff cookies. Mum baked the rest of the cookies for our school lunches. The town kids were just as envious of our homemade cookies as we were of their store bought ones.
