I was married to Alfred Burton on Jan. 6, 1955. Alfred gave me this Mouton coat on Dec. 25, 1955 for Christmas. The more recent photo shows me just before going to church on Jan. 29, 2012. Everybody said it was almost unbelievable that I had had the coat that long.

Energy Efficiency Tip
Check your water heater thermostat. Many manufacturers set thermostats to 140 degrees, although most households only need a setting of 120 degrees. Each 10 degree drop in water temperature can save you between 3 and 5 percent in energy costs.
