What's old is new again...mmmm


I am starting to revert to the old ways in order to be more environmentally friendly Once again, I am hanging out my laundry. As a child, we did not have a dryer because we always hung them on the clothes line. I can still see my Grandmother (GM) hanging up the laundry in her beautiful night gown and robe wearing red lipstick and pearls. That was her trade mark, pearls and red lipstick and anything with a rose on it.

My GM was a large curvy woman with big bosoms. It did not stop her from doing everything she wanted to do. One time I had to help her get into her one piece bathing suit. It was black, her signature color, and it had at least fifty tiny little hooks down the back of the suit, and then you had to zip up the suit! No matter, off she would go to the lake or beach wearing that suit,red lipstick and those pearls.

As for me, I stopped wearing a bathing suit when I was a size twelve, as a public service to avoid burning out the eye balls of innocent children. Not GM, she was a round, curvy voluptuous woman and she did it all. That is why I admired her so much. There was nothing she could not do.

Sounds like your grandmother was quite content being in her own skin.
We should all be like that!
