Phrase: Go to town and eat peaches

Posted by John on September 30, 2003

Is anyone aware of the origin of a phrase: Going to town to eat peaches. This was used by our family in the depression era to indicate there was money available to go shopping, etc. If there was no money to spend, they used: Go to town and watch the people eat peaches.
