    sigh, so true, just because we like something doesn’t mean we get it. There is a reason expensive clothes are desired…many times it is because they feel great and fit soooo nice.

    I still get mine from the thrift stores, and still feel blessed.

    Only a fool and their money spend like that on a growing kid, which looks as if she will outgrow in less than a year.

    They would cost $180 if they were pre-torn.

    I’ve never paid more than $40 for a pair of jeans, which is more than any jeans are really worth.

    $12 for the jeans, $108 for the label — Gram doesn’t buy that logic, Holly!

    I found some nice comfortable jeans at Sears for $15. Felt really lucky about that as the rest were at least $40.

    Good point, Evie! And I’ve tried on expensive jeans to see if they fit better, and they don’t (at least on me). I think you just need to find what fits you and go with that.

    As long as the jeans fit well and the pockets in back look good on the booty, they don’t have to cost more than 50 bucks. Just picked up a great pair at Target for less than 10 dollars because they were getting rid of some older ones for a new batch (and these were still nice slim jeans that were in style). I can still remember when my mother refused to pay more than 20 dollars for Calvin Klein jeans for me quite a ways back. I still got jeans that looked nice and it taught me a good lesson about value and saving.

    How you think Evie survived bring up Joan and Val? We are a long way from dealing with(I apologize ahead of time for being ‘politically incorrect to all the females who remember the Korean War) a ’dumb old broad’. I get the impression that Evie for one reason or another was a single Mom.

    You know , come to think of it, it does
    sound like Evie may have been a single
    parent; do not recall ever hearing about
    Val’s dad. They have never said. Is she
    widowed? Divorced? Evie is a good person, that we know. She is one of my favorite characters.
