   The clothes line....a dead give away.
Do the kids today even know what a clothes line is?

   I am sure a lot of you are too young to remember the Clothes line, but for all of us who are older, this will bring back the Memories
 . It sure did for me.
      1. You had to wash the clothes line before hanging any clothes. Walk
The length of each line with a damp cloth around the line.
      2. You had to hang the clothes in a certain order and always hang
Whites with whites and hang them first.
      3. You never hung a shirt by the shoulders, always by the tail. What
Would the neighbors think?
      4. Wash day on a Monday...........never hang clothes on the weekend or Sunday for heaven's sake!
      5. Hang the sheets and towels on the outside lines so you could hide
Your 'unmentionables' in the middle.
      6. It didn't matter if it was sub zero weather.............clothes
Would 'freeze dry.'
      7. Always gather the clothes pins when taking down dry clothes. Pins
Left on the line was 'tacky'.
      8. If you were efficient, you would line the clothes up so that each
Item did not need two clothes pins, but shared one of the clothes pins with the next washed item.
      9. Clothes off of the line before dinner time, neatly folded in the
Clothes basket and ready to be ironed.
      10. IRONED?????????? Well, that's a whole other subject.
      A POEM
      A clothes line was a news forecast
      To neighbors passing by.
      There were no secrets you could keep
      When clothes were hung to dry.
      It also was a friendly link
      For neighbors always knew
      If company had stopped on by
      To spend a night or two.
      For then you'd see the 'fancy sheets'
      And towels upon the line;
      You'd see the 'company table cloths'
      With intricate design.
      The line announced a baby's birth
      To folks who lived inside
      As brand new infant clothes were hung
      So carefully with pride.
      The ages of the children could
      So readily be known
      By watching how the sizes changed
      You'd know how much they'd grown.
      It also told when illness struck,
      As extra sheets were hung;
      Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too,
      Haphazardly were strung.
      It said, 'Gone on vacation now'
      When lines hung limp and bare.
      It told, 'We're back!' when full lines sagged
      With not an inch to spare.
      New folks in town were scorned upon
      If wash was dingy gray,
      As neighbors carefully raised their brows,
      And looked the other way..
      But clotheslines now are of the past
      For dryers make work less.
      Now what goes on inside a home
      Is anybody's guess.
      I really miss that way of life.
      It was a friendly sign
      When neighbors knew each other best
      By what hung on the line!
