Code or No Code!


Just bought my ump-teenth bag of plastic clothes pins of the 1950's! There is nothing more appealing in color and texture; and the reflection in your brain of seeing someone hanging freshly washed clothes out on a line using these little implements of household helpfulness paints a wholesome picture in my brain. I remember as a child one of my chores was to hang the sheets out on the line....hated it! Little did I know this task would be virtually eliminated in my lifetime. The neighborhood in which I live has a "no clotheslines" in the codes handbook. How bizarre is that? I'm not sure if I had a clothesline I would actually hang my clothes on it, but a fresh Spring day might invite the opportunity. Nevertheless...I will maintain the sanctity of this household chore by preserving its key component...code or no code.

You take the best photos! I remember as a young girl it was my chore to take the laundry off the clothesline. Boy that was hard when some days it was so cold the clothes were nearly frozen. Don't miss that chore. ~ Lynn

I had a bag of those in my hand yesterday at Goodwill and I said to myself "What in the world are you gonna do with THOSE?"...so I put them back.....I can talk myself out of anything.
