Dear Noah...another trip to Webb's antique mall...


and we happened across this old wringer washer. You were fascinated with it...and I have to say..it was in EXCELLENT shape and condition for such an old washing machine...and it was clean...and I bet it worked.

I then informed you...I was old enough to remember when WE used to wash our clothes when I was a kid with a wringer washer very similar to this one......sort of.....ours was a lot larger and I believe more stainless steel to it...

wow.....that seem like so long ago!

We have had a lot of snow....been super cold outside....and you are still enjoying all your new Wii games and PC games you got for Christmas and your birthday.

I love you Mr. Noah!

Did you ever get anything caught in a wringer?

Thank goodness the last wringer washer we had, if something got caught, it automatically tripped it and the wringers popped open and stopped rolling. I had a wringer washer up till 1981 if you remember. Good ole days, they can have them, give me my nice automatic one any time. Rinsing the clothes in the winter, always made my arms ache, from the water being so cold. I guess I should have added some hot water to the rinse water. LOL Then trying to dry them was another problem. But I love my washer and dryer. LOL

I told Becky the next time she goes over to the Webbs to let me know and I might try to take my oxygen tank and go along. Don't know. It will have to be warmer.
