@danon5,
Was great going home....the sights of the city, friends. Very cool

For the Sierra's today - Spring rain - a good change from the hot temps of just a few days ago. A day for reading and research, planning more Spring projects = paint, plus a few recipes to prepare.

Enjoy Spring all ~

@danon5,
Was lots of fun - visiting, some business to attend to, mostly though were trips down memory lane with much laughter. Daughter loved the first apartment we lived in when she was just a baby. Hasn't changed a bit in the past 46 yrs except for paint a few new dormer windows, and wall constuction {was set away from the street with a cement stairway leading to the house} The apartment was a gated courtyard with a private entrance yard. Even had a small laundry room with the old tub type washing machine with wringers! Flooding was not unusual. Good thing the floor was cement, and probably the house's foundation. The apartment was small, the laundry room, livingroom, a teeny space for the baby's crib, kitchen, and bath. The location was terrific though - Noe Valley - lovely old Tudor and Victorian homes.

@Stradee,
Stradee, pics certainly do bring back memories....... Thanks for the views.

Wringers?? we didn't get one of those until I was almost - maybe was - in high school. I still have my Mom's rub board - and, the wringer was a twist of the cloth until we got a HAND wringer that attached to the side of the No. 3 washtub. I as a kid got the honors of turning that thing. Then, we got the one you mentioned.

In the mean time, I had other honors - like churning curds and whey into butter and the part that was left was butter milk. Still have the churns also.

It's hell getting old.

But, hanging in there.

@danon5,
When i recall the adventures of youth, believe me, the process of age seems tame by comparison. My mom said "Shirl, its the shits getting old" and didn't think much of it until i realized that slated projects have a life span of their own. Guess when age arrives, focus goes out the window. I can be working in the yards, then computer researching, then telephone chatting with friends, or decide the hell with the work - i'm gonna sit on the porch and read. Age has its benefits, and although i've been accused of possessing ADD from x coworkers - i can honestly say, that age separates the chaff from the wheat on so many levels. There is no longer anything resembling the work ethic, at least not what we are accustomed to at any rate, and corporations, with no ethical standards, suck.

So we older folk can pat ourselves on the back and thank the gods that we are at an age where we made the grade and passed the test. There ain't nothing better than that.

To you my friend and all ageing WildClickers...

((((((((((applause))))))))))

@Stradee,
Same back atcha, Stradee..... We know where and how a "work ethic" should be....... And, have survived long enough to have been a part of it - and, I still do.

There aren't any 'real' shortcuts to a good life. Everybody else around anyone knows that and sees it - only the 'short-cutter' thinks he/she is getting away with it.

Hang in there. And great "Wildclicking" to you.
