So I was going through the check-out at the grocery the other day. My purchases included boxes of canning lids...about a dozen of each size. The sweet young thing behind the counter asked me what they were. I told her they were canning lids. She said, "Oh, cool. I didn't know there were lids for closing an open soup can."
I have to wonder how many folks have no earthly idea about home canning.
Or how to sew on a button.
Or how to patch a pair of jeans.
Or how to darn a sock.
Or how to dehydrate food.
Or how to wash clothes without a washer and dryer.
Or own clothespins.
Or how to wash dishes by hand.
Or how to plant a garden.
Or how to forage for wild berries.
Or how to knit a pair of mittens.
Or how to crochet a warm scarf or hat.
Or how to cook from scratch.
Or how to bake a loaf of bread.
Or how to write a letter using paper and a pen.
Or how to do much of anything that doesn't involve electronics.
They had better learn.
