Buying Light Bulbs
Today I had to buy light bulbs to replace some that had stopped working. Yeah, I know you may be thinking, what’s this idiot rambling on about now. But because of all the delving back in my mind of days long past, caused me to recall buying light bulbs back in those times. Worths, the hardware store that we referred to as “the oil shop” was where we used to buy our new light bulbs. Now comes the relevant part of this post. When you bought a bulb they would be plugged into a lampholder fixed either on the counter or just behind and switched on to test that they actually worked. Not something that happens today nor for a long time since then. You don’t get that type of service anymore, you just buy them, take them home and hope they work. Memories are great, no matter how trivial they may seem.
