Flying in the wind

Ever since I moved into our house, I wanted a clothesline. What is better than sheets and towels line dried in a gentle breeze? Nothing, right?

A few weeks ago, I finally got my clothesline.

    I miss those days. With the moos to the south of the house, my laundry came in with a bit too much of the “outdoors” smell to them. That and the flies on whites….sigh….How nice to see a clothesline in action though. Thanks for the smile.
