Post girdle garter belts. My junior high experience sitting in class and feeling the pre-pantyhose slowly rolling down my legs becoming really baggy ankle socks. And being called to work a math problem on the blackboard.

A better question is; When was the last time I tried to get someone out of a girdle?

DUH! Must have been taking a nap.

Dawgluver, It's been a long time since I dated anyone who needed a girdle (or thought so).

Even though there were only six of us, I was ready for company. They sat in the china closet looking so pretty. After I had those completed, I started on a set for everyday use from the supermarket. That was only a service for six. And I didn't get all of the serving pieces. They were white with a fluted edge and trimmed in gold.

Now I see those dishes at flea markets and in second-hand stores.
