The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Changing times ..

A sudden rain shower in the 1950's/60's would result in the "housewife" and yes it usually was the lady of the house rushing to the garden or yard to bring into the house any washing from the line. Stopping only to perhaps knock on a neighbours window to warn of the sudden change in weather.

The modern "housewife" seems to care little - washing is left on the line for days or even weeks through a whole cycle of weather conditions.

How times and priorities change.

They do and for the better. Women used to have to give up work when they married.
Even though they could type at sixty words a minute............Sixty words a minute?.....Six is bloody quick.
