Remember When



Jim and I escaped to PA over the week-end for some quiet and to get away from all the things at home that we ought to be doing.

Like always our first stop was Hollabaugh's orchard store for fruit and vegetables. When I stepped out of the car I looked over my shoulder and saw these clothes flapping in the breeze. The sight brought back so many memories.

* Feeling good if you got your clothes washed and on the line before 9 am.

* The smell of a bed newly made with fresh sheets which had been dried in the summer sun.

* How wet diapers stuck to your fingers as they froze when you were hanging them out on a windy winter day.
Thinking about that now - how ridiculous to hang them out - but without a dryer where else could you put them.
Then the folding.

* Propping the clothesline up with a pole so the sheets and towels did not drag on the ground.

* Liking snap clothes pins better than the kind you pushed onto the line.

* How glad I was when I bought a clothes pin bag that slid down the line so I did not have to hold the second clothes pin in my mouth.

There are so many more. I may add more as I think of them.

Do you remember the days of clothes lines and clothes pins?
