So THAT'S What's Wrong!

Coffee nerves! Who knew?

When I look at ads like these it makes me think about the women of the 50's and how much the home depended on her. The housewife was the backbone of the American home during that post-war era. And you know the saying: if mama's not happy, nobody's happy!

Personally, I don't get the jitters when I drink coffee. I can even go back to sleep after having it. This poor lady here better give up coffee altogether!


  1. One time my friend Cindy and I were antiquing and I happened to see an old tin on a shelf. Look, I said, it's Instant Possum! I really thought that's what it said! I'm sure you can guess what it really was. We had lots of fun with that one. Everywhere we went we got the giggles and people were staring at us like we were nuts. Well, we are, kinda. :)

  2. Susan, Instant Possum eh? I'd have bought a case.

  3. My Mom drank postum. It was a staple for her. I remember the dark brown jars and I think a silver w/blue label? What was it actually made from, anyone know?
