My wife has still got the one her dad used when he was a cotton ginner but it is plastic but does have the same type thermos.

 I have a lunch box story also. In the early days of my job, everyone packed a lunch box and all were set in one place in a lunch room. There were many different kinds, from very old hand-me-downs, to the latest with the best stainless thermos bottles. One puzzled me. It was a full sized woven picnic basket. I was anxious to see who had it and what he had in something that large. Soon I got my answer and it was a surprise. He was one of the smallest guys there and his basket was FULL of sandwiches, fruit and desert. To my amazement.......he ate all of it, every day.

When I first started working at the base, I carried a couple sandwiches and a ziploc bag in a paper lunch sack.  I weighed all of 125 pounds.  After my wife started packing leftovers in a lunchmate, I began to gain weight.  35 years later, I weighed 175 pounds carrying the same 2 sandwiches, a few chips, and a cookie or 2 she made.  Now after 15 years retirement, I am trying to get back down to that 175 pounds.

Good luck on that . I have added 20 since I retired 6 years ago and added way too much over the holidays which never dropped off this time as it usually does.
