That does sound so beautiful, doesn't it? How I'd like to be there... My wife was in Florence a couple of years ago and she thoroughly enjoyed it. I believe it was her favorite part of the trip she was on. But she did not go to the Uffizi. I criticized her severely for that!

Re: Quote of the Day

Re: Henry Morgan

Re: What's My Line

I don't know. I guess there was sales tax then, as there is now, at least in most states. Maybe the manufacturer had some kind of deal where they allowed the retailer to charge a flat $1.50 in all cases and absorbed whatever the tax was themselves.
