From a different time...
Went to digging into the archives today...looking for antique sterling from my great grandmother (that I would never melt). Haven't found it yet but came across my mom's set of Towle "King Richard" sterling flatware that was almost lost in the fire I had back in upstate NY. In its' present condition, it has more value as future TFL ingots. Nostalgic sucker that I am - I will preserve one place setting. We used to eat with this only on special occasions in our seldom used dining room. In my present state of mind that seems awfully bourgeois...but my parents were from a different time. My meals now come from one pot with one spoon and knife in a 128 sq ft house that is kitchen, office, bedroom....and dining room. I am quite comfortable with that. On special occasions I might use a paper plate. I don't dare use my grandmother's Limoges China. 78,94,65,0,B,.35
