Tuesday, November 10, 1936

plesant and windy
freezing a little-
Made Butterscotch custard and done the washing-
Clothes froze on the line-
Carried in Auntys' 20 gal crock and brass kettle-
Mother was not bad about the washing-
made her only a little nervous and could not understand how we had so large a wash-


  1. I remember taking clothes that had froze off the line. Only a few pieces at a time because they couldn't be folded. And I thought it was a miracle that when they thawed, they were dry!

    1. I remember doing that as a kid. We didn't get a dryer until I was in high school. We still use the clothesline when the weather is nice.


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
