Hi gang what was that movie, “Ever which way but loose” that must be how the USA Ryder Cup Team feels about now. Well by the time 2006 rolls around maybe most of the European team will have switched to soccer! Hey what the heck folks that’s GOLF!

Go ahead and pass the crying towel please. When I was a we tot or is it tight any way if I got hurt or bamboozled I would run to gamma and cry in her apron. Ah… the memories.

Grandma's Apron...

The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress
underneath, but along with that, it served as a holder for removing
hot pans from the oven;

It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even
used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken-coop the apron was used for carrying eggs,
fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in
the warming oven.

When company came those aprons were ideal hiding places for
shy kids; and when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it
around her arms.

Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over
the hot wood stove. Chips and kindling wood were brought into
the kitchen in that apron.

From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.
After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls. In the fall
the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how
much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch,
waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from
the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will
replace that "old-time apron" that served so many purposes.

Send this to those who would know and love the story about Grandma's aprons.

Her granddaughter's set theirs on the window sill to thaw

Thought for the day, remember when things were much simpler!
