I have a child’s 3T sleeper that I’ll let go real cheap


Before I was of school age and well-before the days of Perma-Press, I remember mom ironing nearly every piece of clothing or fabric in the house. This effort included jeans, t-shirts, towels, sheets, and dishrags with very few items spared from being “pressed”. We had a Maytag wringer washer and all of the washed clothes in our family of six were either hung outside on a clothesline or in the basement on several clotheslines that my dad had attached to the floor joists. I still have trouble comprehending the level of effort it must have taken let alone everything else she did to keep the house. She worked very hard to take care of us and I still miss hearing her cough in the mornings while drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes in her bathrobe as she listened to Swap Shop on WOMP 1290AM.
