friday mornings i do the laundry around here and i got to thinking about mom's first clothes dryer. it was electric and had two large trays, kinda like ice cube trays, underneath that had to be emptied of water. this was about 45 yrs. ago and it was my job to empty the trays. needless to say the floor was usually more wet than dry!

That thing sure must have been a pain. Guess one real good thing about growin up back in the sticks was that you did't get any of these here type gadgets untill the city folks had worked all the bugs out of them and then made them cheap enough that the folks in the sticks could afford them. Guess them city folks had more good reasons to do their dirty laundry inside though.
