Cathy Classics by Cathy Guisewite for December 06, 2001
Mom: $38 for one ornament? Cathy: It's a collectible "heirloom" ornament, Mom! Mom: Your Father and I paid $1.50 for our last entire box of ornaments! Kathy: They weren't "heirloom," were they? Mom: They've been hanging on our tree for 45 years!! Cathy: Look! It has a serial number! Mom: If I numbered and overcharged for my words of wisdom would you start collecting them too??
