After scoring a couple of Betty lamps at a local auction,
I needed to decide where to display them.
After moving them around the house,
I decided the best place to hang them was on the mantle.
Looking at these old whale oil lamps
makes me realize just how easy we have things.
When we want light, we just flip a switch.
We don’t have to fill a lamp with oil,
light it, and carry it around with us.
Times certainly are easier –
you would think we would all have a lot more free time…
