That's a beautifully designed ad. Do they still make Lux soap? And I wonder if it was really 98%? It could have been just 96 or 97. Hmmm...

I just looked it up, and they do still make Lux over seas. They are now headquartered in Singapore, and owned by Unilever.

It was probably 97.9% 😂

And—it's for sale at the big river store—lots of it. :)

I wanted to share this, because it reminds me of my babysitter's house when I was really little.

The big open space, and the rug, I guess. She had a couple cats, too, so maybe that's part of it. 😊

It's funny how small details can resonate with something in your deep subconscious memories, isn't it? I often have the experience where something prompts a little fleeting half-memory which doesn't really register with me fully enough to retain it. (Does that make any sense?)

Yes. That sounds kind of like deja vu!

Love that television ad! And um... I can't believe they used the term "walkie-lookie"😂
