It’s so nice to have a clothesline again! There is nothing like slipping between sheets with that outdoor smell!
It’s taken me forever to get it installed. I had to hunt all over for the poles last year and finally found them at an Ann Arbor hardware store. I never got around to putting them in so finally, my (husband’s) nephew buried them in concrete for me. Sarge got tired of looking at it, so she ordered me outside and we strung the line last week.
Mom got me pins, a line and line props for my birthday; she had the date and event burned into the wood! It’s one of my favorite presents ever!
I don’t even remember how to hang clothes properly. I think I’m supposed to hang my shirts from the hem, but that leaves them all stretched out with two “tags” hanging from the bottom. So, I hung them from their tops, but had to use 4 clothespins to keep the same thing from happening in reverse. Surely, that can’t be right? For God’s sake, can someone please help this dumb-@ss with this riddle?
Of course, I have forgotten the clothes on the line overnight already . . .
