Wheres My Backpack/Travel Theme: Old Fashioned


‘I don’t know about you but there’s nothing quite like the smell of sun-dried washing. Call it what you will but you can keep all the modern new-fangled ways of doing things, what? I’d be happy to return to the old ways. Call it ‘Ole Fashioned’ if you must but laundry drying on a line in the sunshine is far better than machines that cost a fortune, pollute the environment and breakdown. Give me the old ways any time.’

‘I say Gladys, any chance of a cup of tea, cup and saucer you know and a freshly baked scone with jam and cream while I finish polishing my shoes?’

    I agree, in summer, two loads dried today!

    I agree about the smell of air dried clothes but in many neighbourhoods of US you are not allowed to hang out clothes to dry.
