Re: TOH wants to know what you miss most about houses of the past
Having live through some of the good old days.
I don't miss the out house.
I don't miss the wood burning cook stove or the work it took keeping to going.
I don't miss carrying the water in from the well.
I don't miss heating the water on the stove for bathing or washing cloths.
I don't miss hand milking the cows.
I don't miss shoveling coal for the furnace or carrying 5 gal. cans of coal oil in for the heater.
I don't miss the gravel and dirt roads.
I do miss the old radio programs that we use to listen to and the expansion of our imagination that it provided.
I do miss the fresh veggies, milk, and fruit we always seemed to have on hand but I sure don't miss the ¼ acre garden we had to hand weed.
But most of all I miss the $47/yr property taxes.
