Friend Bonnie, down East, was the only person I knew that still hung out her laundry, until she passed away.
I have mentioned before I really do enjoy cleaning. Of course more when I want to, rather than when I must do it. But usually when I get wrapped up in it, I still enjoy it.
I NORMALLY FORGET NOTHING (snide is supposed to show there!) Now, my memory proves to be fallible here in the motor home. I can blame it on Sherry. As a friend is prone to say, “I didn’t say it was your fault, I said I am blaming you.” Since I am the lazy one and as the norm, I get up last. So I make our bed. The day before she is scheduled to wash the sheets, she ALWAYS tells me, ‘don’t make the bed in the morning I am going to wash the sheets.’
At least half the time I make the bed anyway out of habit. Sometimes she will tear it down, and then sometimes she will wait until the next day with the WARNING, ‘Now don’t make the bed in the morning………… I am usually good the second day.’
We sleep in a sleep-sack. The sheet(s) are really the SHEET one that makes two, really long. And both hems are wide, HA! It is held in place by Velcro down each side, top and bottom. Presently we are using the washer up in the house, but our little washer will wash the SHEET and two pillow cases, but that is about its limit.
Probably if Sheet washing was left up the male portion of citizenry we would probably change the oil rather than wash them. Or maybe we would buy new sheets monthly (or yearly). It is good we men have someone to protect us from ourselves.
I do have silly questions I guess. I know the ‘bedsheet’ has two hems. A big one at the top the small at the bottom. My questions is, “WHO CARES” it is a rectangle of cloth, why does it need a top and bottom. My handkerchief has even hems. OK, I really don’t want to get chewed out here, but why does the sheet have a top end and bottom? Does it have an up and down?
I better quit while I am behind.
PS: No we do not hang our wash out anymore.
