Sharing a Slice of Life this week, is about chores, and reads in part, "write about doing chores as a child".
Man and I have been doing a LOT of chores around the stick built this week, and well, I have not had the time to devote to this meme, cause of all those chores!

Last August, I shared a photo of her teaching our two eldest sons how to use that SAME wringer machine, photo from 1979. Here it is again:
* Next time I run across this photo of me and the infamous bucket, I am going to re-scan it, save it in a better and larger format.
