65 Years Ago


This is PRICELESS ...

A little old lady from Wisconsin had worked in and around her 

family dairy farms since she was old enough to walk, with 
hours of hard work and little compensation.

When canned Carnation Milk became available in grocery 

stores in the 1940s, she read an advertisement offering 
$5,000 for the best slogan.

The producers wanted a rhyme beginning with'Carnation 

Milk is best of all.'

She thought to herself, I know everything there is to know 

about milk and dairy farms. I can do this! She sent in her entry, 
and several weeks later a black car pulled up in front of her house.

A large man got out, knocked on her door, and said, "Ma'am, 

the president of Carnation milk absolutely LOVED your entry. 
So much, in fact, that we are here to award you $1,000, even 
though we will not be able to use it for our advertisements!"

He did, however, have one printed up to hang on his office wall.

Here it is:


They tell me True story!

Thanks Dan!

Ain't it the truth. I've hand-milked on cold winter mornings--fond memories, but never want to do that again.

City girl here... never milked a cow and I'm glad I never had to. Can't say much for Carnation milk either. Ewww, who wants to drink canned milk?

Sounds more like something a cowboy would say.

Carnation Milk?? How do you get milk from a carnation?

You use a very low stool.
