T-195 : Funky Fives
Today in Sunday School Sister Powell had the scriptures she wanted folks to read out loud all neatly written on her poster board, as she usually does. I noticed something, though, about some of her 5s. They had an extra serif hanging down. I have a vague recollection of learning to write my 5s in penmanship class in elementary school and being told that I could write them either the "old school" (they probably didn't use that phrase in the 70s in elementary school) or the "new way". Am I dreaming? Does anyone else remember writing their 5s differently before about 1975 than they did after?
