The Nude Men Clock

How clever.
I like the way
the guys on the minute
hand are tapping their foot
as they wait for the minute to
pass. Somebody had way too much
time on their hands! Be sure to click on
the clock to make it digital. It's actually the
correct time even counting the seconds !!! What kind
of computer engineer-mind person thinks of these things ?

This is a masterpiece!!! This is extremely clever and
it does actually work, in BOTH formats!!!! Digital
and Analogue. And it's actually on YOUR correct
time. This human clock is fantastic !!!!!!!!!!!
Click anywhere in the clock and it
becomes digital, another click

and it returns to normal.

The History of 'APRONS'

I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses, and aprons used less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.  

It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears. From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks and Sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven. When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. And when the weather was cold, Grandma wrapped it around her arms.

·         Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.
·         Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.
·         From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables.
·         After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.
·         In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.
·         When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.
·         When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron and the men folk knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes. Send this to those who would know (and love) the story about Grandma's aprons.

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.
They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron.
I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron, but love.
