Bathing beauty. The picture says a lot - it's such a good idea to keep the whole picture. Laundry wasn't easy to do in those days. A hot summer day would be ideal for laundry-bath day. The all-purpose tub - used for rinsing clothes, bathing people, and an outdoor pool on this day.
This makes me want to put up enough of a clothesline so I can hang newly washed sheets out in the sunshine. Remember the smell of those sheets when we would climb into bed?Louise looks very content. At least Mother knew where she was for a few minutes.
want to put up a clotheline or take a bath in the yard?
Clotheline, yes. Bath, no.
is that supposed to be clothesline?
Hmmm - seriously?? I didn't say anything about a bath. However, this does make me stop and consider the possibilities, before quickly moving on to other things.
Think of the possibilities, it's like an old Clint Eastwood movie. Wash the clothes in the tub, hang the clothes on the line for privacy, repurpose the water for your bath. Think of it the chickens milling about, a good novel... possibilities abound.
Now we're getting some where.
But who comes riding into the yard? Ace?
