I grew up on a farm in rural Iowa and one of my favorite memories from childhood is the scent and the feel of stuff that was hung out on the clothesline that my grandpa had sunk into a pool of concrete about 40 some years ago. I don’t know that my mom was trying to be a frugal farmwife or if she liked the scent as much as I did, but in the early 1990s, my folks took out the clothesline and now everything is dried by the dryer.
And it’s the same in my house. Never mind that we have a clothesline in the back yard. It runs under a walnut tree and a pine tree and for some inane reason, I’m sure that if I were to hang up my bedsheets they’d become a hanging target for my avian backyard buddies.
JD from “Get Rich Slowly” wrote this post recently on clotheslines and it’s planted a seed in my thoughts – maybe I should give clotheslines a second chance.
