Thankyou Torgny

what a fascinating view of someone else's way of doing the daily chores
- I note few pegs ... mostly on the little items, the larger items just left to "hang-around"

The building is wonderful to view as well -so very different from our aussie houses

Regards, Phil

Phil,

Excuse me for not answering until now. I have done some "research" on the architecture. What I think I know is that is British in origin. I'll come back to the subject

Yes, and why not dry clothes outside. No electricity - "sustainable clothes drying" one might say

Regards

Torgny

Default Thank you for posting

I love both of them very much. It's about time something simple as this gets posted. Brought back many memories of when I was growing up. Laundry, hanging to dry and pick up after being dried was one of my chores. Funny how I miss it now and really didn't like it then.

Yes, I like the simple life as well. You get some perspective as the years go by

G'day Torgny

nice to hear from you again
re: clothes drying ... in Oz, most people - maybe 99%- with everyday homes on a 1/4-acre block with some grass in the back yard will dry their clothes in the sunshine unless it's raining...
Down here it's regarded by many people as being 'wasteful & [almost] sinful' to use an electric clothes dryer when the sun can do it for you

However, if you are living in a multi-story block of apartments - you have little choice
Regards, Phil

And clothes that are dried on a line smell wonderful without any additive. I don't think I'm going to suggest to Mrs. Barbarian that we put up a clothesline, though.

Chose your battles...

Phil,

Thanks for the folkloristic information Someone said you can dry clothes in minus temperature degrees (Celsius anyhow) Don't understand how that would be possible

The Barbarians,

Long marriages make me cry. I envy those who manage. The ability to adjust to other people - I'm sure you've fought harder battles ...

Use to tell all my sons: "Choose your enemies" (Better would be to choose no enemies at all, of course)

Anyhow, that special smell could at least be a childhood memory - those smell sensations are very important - digging into the reptile brain
