Amish Wash Day-

I remember back-in-the day when everyone hung their clothes out on the clothesline that was in the backyards. Our family included. In winter, we hung the clothes on a line stretched across the warm basement. No one I knew had a clothes dryer...yet.
We were in no hurry for the clothes to dry, and ironing a few wrinkles out of air-dried shirts and slacks, etc. was just part of life. Still is with the Amish.

Seeing the laundry of the Amish in the Palatine area of NY, hanging in the breeze to dry, brought back fond memories.
