    I just realized that Joan is younger than me.

    She could be around my age: 39. I was in grade school from ‘78-’83, middle: ‘83-’ 80’s kid.

    Funny. I’m re-reading my Stone Soup comic collections. Back in the 1990s, Evie put the kids to bed with tales of how their mom had been arrested at a 60s protest for taking off her clothes. Now, because most comic strip characters don’t age, Joan is still early 30s, which means she was a teenager when the strip first started.

    My old business suits are totally out of style for me (even though I wore most of them into late 90s before my last layoff). It does not help that I was heavier then too. Most have a serious shoulderpad thing – no way!

    OMG. . . I was a young woman starting out in the 80’s, including a new office job. Everything I wore had shoulder pads. . . LOL! Remember how sometimes they would stack up b/c the blouse would have a set and the jacket would, too? Woohoo . . .

    I only need a winter coat for a few days every year when I go home to Canada. my girls have finally trashed all what I thought was still in style coats and I had to buy a new one!! When you are young you can wear retro from the thrift shops ,when your older it just looks like you can’t afford new clothes.

    I thought both sisters were well over 40. They look and act over 40.

    Dang it, the Walgreens stores in my area have stopped carrying plain tee shirts. There goes my convenient pipeline to couture. (Pants are charcoal-heather starfish pants from Lands’ End by way of JCPenney.) Lots of my outfits ate thirty years old – one long dress is forty and still looks ok. I have broad shoulders, and have finally gotten the nerve to start cutting off the ancient shoulder pads. I don’t care if people think I can’t afford better!

    Clothes are not such a big deal like they were in the past. The same with cars. Now people wear simple clothes and drive older cars without shame. The focus now is the latest electronics.

    I meant Sears, not JCPenney.
