When I was your age...



Well, I've been going through my older emails, and I found this photo, lovingly submitted by my dear brother Avy. You may remember him from such posts as this one, and even thisHe is officially a good brother; as you can see, he's linked to both of my blogs on his sidebar :)


Anyway, Avy wrote, "I saw this sign at Jewel, and thought: "It's probably my duty as a human being to share this with Toby and her blog. Apparently, it's a new brand of bread." To which I respond, "!?!"




So it's true that I haven't lived in America for quite a few years, but I can tell you that in *my* day, bimbos just weren't so readily available - and certainly not next to the olives at the grocery store.


Thank you, Avy! And everyone - don't forget to check out Lesley's cool new meme, Signs, Signs! Have a great week!

In *my* day bimbos were ALWAYS available! That's why they were bimbos.

a 20oz Bimbo would be rather tiny!!
I don't think I could ever ask for "a loaf of bimbo, please"

What a strange name for bread! Usually, they want you to feel like you are strong and smart for using their product, but not these people.

I actually buy Bimbo bread and even my son said, "What/ Do you know what bimbo means?!" I had to laugh. They took my old bread brand off the shelf and it's the only kosher bread hereso, I laughed and bought the bread....
