Windy day

In the summertime, I always hang my laundry on a clothesline instead of putting it in the dryer. It saves gas and makes for less wear and tear on the fabric. The days are hot enough to get the job done quickly, and shaking the items as I take them off the line gets rid of the stiffness that normally sets in if there’s no wind to fluff things a bit.

Imagine my surprise when I went to take clothes off the line and discovered an entire sock blown clear to the ground! This year has been a big one for wind damage across the country. We here in California don’t usually get big blasts strong enough to lift a whole cotton sock clear off the line, and when it happens, it’s blogworthy.

Just thought you’d like to know.

That wind damage looks serious. I have seen news reports of socks being blown part way to the ground, but never all the way!

And another thing about being blown clear to the ground—it’s harder to pick them up if you have a stiff back. Part way to the ground is nice since all you have to do is maybe a little curtsy.

OK I'll feed the fish and hamster for this one :)

Susan—Don’t bother. I just fed them.

I wonder how often we both feed them, and why they aren't getting fat? I know Aunt Pat feeds them too :) Maybe we should make a feeding roster. You could make one of those when it's too windy to hang out socks?
