Keep your gold, keep your diamonds.....
81 year old Tim Anderson has all that he needs, in the form of a 100 year old slice of bread, with a bite taken out of it. My opinion is if breade makes you happy and nostalgic then collect bread.
"On Sept. 22, 1904, Ruth Williams of the Totty's Bend community in Hickman County baked a loaf of bread in her old wood-fired oven and gave it as a gift to her gravely ill sister-in-law, Jenny Lind Williams.
My mother, Pearl Williams Anderson, who was the daughter of Jenny Lind, decided to save a slice of the fresh-baked bread. She was 17 years old at the time," he added. Anderson said he doesn't know why a bite had been taken out of the slice of bread, but it had been in his mother's possession since 1929.
