Poor kids. That Mom was surprisingly easygoing, though.

Anyway, I like how you gave your characters personalities.

(smile) I like your title! I loved your description of Woolworth's and your indescision of spending your quarter. good use of dialogue.
Well done.** THIS SPARKLES**
I'm not sure if this is fiction or a true story, but it was very believable. I really like how this story flowed. It was very smooth and kept my attention till the very end. A very good piece of writing. Thank you for sharing!
I forgot to add that I too thought the use of dialogue was great in this, and I think that is what really helped it read so smoothly.
Sweet tale of these two cousins' experience. Nice details appropriate to the time setting - yes, popbeads were the THING for young girls - you never had to worry about breaking them. :) Good job.
