Believe It Or Not!

About a month ago I was looking through an old box of photographs that belonged to my mother.  For some reason, there was an old electric bill nestled among all of those old pictures.  I looked at the date and it was from the year 1965!  Then I looked at the amount due…fourteen dollars and fifty-nine cents–and that was for TWO MONTHS of service!  Can you believe it?  It’s true….and here is the proof!

  1. Don’t we all wish prices could be the same. But then again, so would the wages which were just as low.

    But I’m sorry my friend as I am going to point out that 6/17 – 7/19 is only one month, not two.

    • But Ruth…look closely at the bill…there is a previous balance of 6.74 from the month before…the actual one month bill for 6/17 to 7/19 was only 5.48 plus 2.37 which adds up to 7.85. Gotcha!

  2. My son had an electric bill for his first apartment that was not even $30.00 a month. Then he moved and it got even lower for a year. Then he moved again and has the same horrible electric company that I do and his bill is way high. He is having electric shock (pun intended).
    Oh and please enter me.

    • That’s a good pun, Trudy! You are entered. Have a great evening…

  3. Wow! I wish those days were still here!
