Times have changed.

Aren't you glad we don't do laundry like this anymore? This is our grandmother on her back porch getting ready to put some clothes on the line. Our grandmother had 10 children, our mom was #8 in the line up. Can you imagine how much laundry she had to do!! My goodness it would take forever. God Bless you Grandma!

  1. I was thinking about putting up a clothes line when the weather gets better to save a little dough. My dishwasher has been broken for a long time now. I am waiting for a part. Boy, I sure do miss the modern convenience that my dishwasher provides! I can't imagine not having a washer or dryer. I bet these women had strong arms! :0)

  2. Ahem, well, I just put a new line up. That being said, I think that there is a big difference between a line being your only option, and a line being there to hang your whites and linens when you want them to dry in the sun and summer breeze. I adore this photo of your Grandma!
