Just a quick follow up to yesterday’s post.

Regarding clothes and clotheslines. I got my first clothes dryer only ten years ago. Until then I always hung everything on the clothesline to dry. There were times when it was so nice to see the sheets and towels on the line and blowing in the breeze. Then there were the times when I raced Mother Nature to get the dry clothes off the line before the rain arrived.

When we moved to this house the area had changed and they had a restriction against hanging clothes on a clothesline. Code Enforcement people were hot on the trail of anyone trying to smuggle in a clothesline and clothespins. Okay, they wouldn’t shoot you or anything but you could be fined.

These past ten years have been a whole new world for me. I didn’t have to check the radar every five minutes if there were rain showers in the area. I didn’t have to haul heavy baskets of wet clothes out to the back yard. I didn’t have to cringe when the robins migrated through and consumed mass quantities of red Brazilian Pepper berries. It was, I must say, rather nice. And yes, there were times over those past ten years when I did feel like Miss Fancy Pants because I had caught up with the modern laundry world.

Oh and guess what? The electrician called last night and the parts he ordered didn’t come in, so now it will be Thursday or Friday before I experience my day in hell. It’s kind of like hearing from the governor that your execution will be delayed for a day or so. It feels good at the moment, but it doesn’t mean much.

Those couple of days could mean a lot. We are supposed to have a break in the heat in the next couple of days. It was significantly cooler last night as storms blew in off the Gulf. Maybe you will get lucky.

how about those wooden folder dryer rack/stands? If you set a couple of those up (very low profile) you could dry some clothes on them.

I used to love hanging stuff on the line, but it means so much ironing and stiff towels....

That is happening a lot nowadays. Covenants in the neighborhood that don't allow clotheslines. It is really too bad that you can't at least have the option of hanging out your clothes if you feel the urge or, like in your case, the need.
I used to be the one that had to bring in the clothes(I was oldest) and I can still smell the fragrance of the sheets as you bundled them up to bring them in.

ah, the evils of the HOA. I have that too. I got around it with a retractable line in my kitchen. When it's "put away" it just looks like a... well... a boob... on the wall. When you pull on the "nipple", it becomes a clothesline and the "nipple" attaches to an inconspicuous fastener on the opposite wall.

I use it for the "hang to dry - do not use dryer" clothes.

Oh, and I really hope you didn't think I thought you didn't know how to do a clothesline! *blush*

The body-nazis who wote my homeowner's association's bylaws won't allow clotheslines, even if they're behind fences.

I love it when the neighborhood nazis regulate what you can do on your property -- because everyone knows that it's a slippery slope from clotheslines to meth labs.
