4 SUPER DON-ITE MELAMINE PLATES - BUTTER YELLOW

There are traditions and then there are Thompson traditions. One of the Thompson's traditions was to spend several weeks each summer at their beloved cabin which they lovingly christened "Tomorrow's Another Day" or "TAD's Cabin" for short. The whole Thompson brood would pile in their Rambler wagon and drive up the windy mountain road until they reached the cool pine country. Once they arrived at T.A.D., Mrs. Thompson would pull out the yellow Super Don-Ite plastic plates and pretty much every meal was eaten off of them out on the large covered porch–after all it was a "Thompson" tradition. At least one time during their stay Mr. Thompson would inevitably say, "Mother, that was a TAD more than I needed to eat," and then everyone would groan.

Well even though Mr. and Mrs. Thompson have long since passed away, the TAD Cabin still remains in the family and the clan still pulls out those old yellow plates to eat off of. And yes, somebody will most certainly say, "That's a tad more than I needed to eat." It is a Thompson tradition you know.
