Re: Lone Ranger
Back in the 40's, my Mom worked for a sewing factory in Honesdale PA
owned by the Katz family. They made, you guessed it, Katz Pajamas. They
also made contract underwear for the armed services.
The business is long gone, but I recently "met" the granddaughter of
the family, Liza Prior Lucy, the quilter who works with Kaffe Fassett,
on a quiltart list. Small world.
I believe Evening in Paris is still available from the Vermont Country
Store, along with Tangee lipstick and various other icons of
mid-century living. Fun stuff.
What a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing..... I wonder where the
saying "the cat's pajamas" came from?
My mom wore Estee Lauder.... the smell that was so heavy.... Youth
Dew. I can smell it now just thinking of mom.
(today it is suppose to be in the high 50's.... I am hoping to get out
in the garden)

"Evening in Paris" Wow! That really takes me back. I think I was
given about six bottles and/or boxes of dusting powder for my
high-school graduation. I thought it was pretty dull even then.
The scent that really turned me on was "Tabu" (or was it spelled
Taboo?). During the WWII years that one was very hard to get,
but I had been given a small bottle brought back by a soldier
returning from Europe. I thought I was the cat's pajamas!

Me too Jim and Jesse-there are certain songs/smells that take me
"to the moment"
My grandmother wore "Evening in Paris" too Jesse. Amazing how these
Of course I really didn't like my grandmother so that's not one of the
smells I'd want to experience again.......;-)
