This is what I see...
One word ... dryers! (That, and we are not allowed to have clotheslines here.)
It all ended up in the dryer! And WHAT?? You're not allowed clotheslines? I don't understand....
Clotheslines are prohibited in our community (and most of NYC) as a blight on the landscape. Actually, clotheslines themselves are not very common in much of the US. There was one when my son bought his current house in New Jersey - but they have never used it. The former owners said it hadn't been used in many years even before they bought the house.
When I was very young, my grandparents had a summer house in the mountains. We had no washer or dryer there (it was VERY isolated!) so I do remember a clothesline from the back porch to a tree in the woods on a pulley. I found clothespins very interesting! LOL!
... but you got a nice picture out of the deal.
True! Thanks :)
