When we were young .....our parents were heard saying ...*.Oh boy.. it would be nice to be able to *turn the clock back*
And i think we wondered what that meant and why they would use that phrase now and again?
Their work was never finished~ From daybreak to dawn ...it seemed that there was* forever * things that had to be done. They always did have a huge garden from the time i could remember ~ . Dad worked as a hat maker and mom ....well mom didn’t go out to work then ... but with four little mouths to feel and dad and herself made six meals three times a day and cleaning , washing, remember ..... she did all that without the help of anyone else regardless how she was feeling and she didn’t have
the modern applinces that there are these days . Wow~ Just the pulling the water from the well and carrying coal to cook with ...
So hard to believe....Now a days.. all the young folks feel that without all the new appliances and even the ones that are not a need just a want ...... an ex ample .... A Dishwasher...... But to them it is a *Must*
They would not have survived the olden days .........and lived into their ninties as mother did ~and worked much harder than they will ever work~
And you wonder why ........the phrase was used ..... BUT it does make me wonder *If* the clock would be turned back and mother had the same stuff that the young ones had now ......would she have lived as long as she did ...Bless her soul....
