Good old days

Caroline Thorns, Sunningdale

While cleaning my desk drawers, I came across a Tabletalk dated October 27 2005, in which Spar advertised the following: Crown oil 750ml for R3.99; club and T-bone steak for R29.95 per kg; half or whole lamb for R27.35 per kg; fresh chickens for R13.99 per kg, a six-pack of long-life milk for R28.95; lettuce for R1.99; English cucumber for R2.99; leg of lamb for 39.95 per kg; lamb shank for R49.95 per kg and lamb cutlets for R45.95 per kg.

I am sure that many of your readers will remember the Killarney Hotel, where they served T-bone for R29.50.

Those were the good old days.
