Just got a present — new clothesline poles! — 5 Comments

  1. Almost every time I hang clothes outdoors I think about the “poor” people who live in neighborhoods with neighborhood associations. Imagine being told what you can and can’t do on your own property, including having a clothesline!
    Love you Jackie! You are the reason I subscribe.

  2. Jackie, I know you’re just thrilled about having a clothesline. I finally got mine by purchasing two 4 x 4 posts and starting to dig the holes. DH took over and by the next day, I was hanging clothes again. Boy, the things we have to do…!!

  3. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for being such an inspiration… I also wanted to give back by telling you of a clothes like I made for in my home over the winter.
    We built a back room clothes line… 2 wooden studs, eye hooks set a foot apart from eachother. Put the done stud on each side of the room on a stud, and draped the lines… I have been using this for while.. Thank you for all your tips… I know at times it is nice to hear a thank you and since getting the internet… finally have my chance… I have been researching European Canning… Twist top lids… One piece lids…I did it with a Italian Jar I bought and a few others… Worked great! Anyhoo… Deeply appreciative…. Respect you alot for your strength and integrity. Thanks!

  4. Congratulations on the clothesline poles! I’ve been waiting for installation for mine for a couple months now, but hubby mucked up his knee and we’re in a holding pattern. Thank heavens for trees and hangers, else I’d have to use the dryer alot more. There is nothing so wonderful smelling as line dried clothes!

  5. If you want a ham taste to your beans you can buy a product called base in most grocery stores….usually by the saltier boullion cubes in 8 oz jars. Comes in chicken,beef,ham and vegetable. Excellent for adding flavor to canning or stews/soups,making quick sacues. We always keep it on hand–wonderful for bean soup when you don’t have any leftover ham to put in it!. The variety is excellent,too. DEE
