1940s

I received an email today : "Would you like to join The Underpants Club" A new underwear directly at your door once a month (for only 20 bucks) Did you say once a month? My mother taught me Replace after one use - without exception In the old days they had not heard of bacteria ... but changed underpants at least every other Saturday When spring came it was time for laundry that took place outdoors, at the creek or the water post where there was plenty of clean water available Fleas and lice are nasty ... and itches terribly 28.02.2020 Sun :) - A-L Andresen :) Copyright © All Rights Reserved Poem Of The Day: 01.03.2020

Sunshine Smile, congratulations my friend on thiss amusing poem and for being awarded POTD for it, truly deserved!- I loved it, you are quite right, how could they stand to smell themselves, and go back a 100 or more years, perhaps it was once every two or three months! I had a good laugh, where on earth did you find this picture - great pic LOL Blessings, Jennifer.

I know the poem was about a washing machine. I already commented yesterday. I was referring to my experience with another appliance
