I spend time each week with two wonderful older women. One I cook with every Wednesday at the Ronald McDonald House. I laugh sometimes because she scrapes the bottom of the bowl to make sure every last bit is out. I throw away the grease, and she tries to find a way to use it or save it for next week.
The other woman asked me to help her find a clothesline. None of the stores I visited carry an outside clothes rack. What has happened that we feel that we don't have the time or need to hang our clothes?
