A clothes line was a news forecast
To neighbors passing by.
There were no secrets you could keepWhen clothes were hung to dry.
It also was a friendly link For neighbors always knew If company had stopped on by To spend a night or two.
For then you'd see the 'fancy sheets'And towels upon the line;You'd see the 'company table cloths'With intricate design.
The line announced a baby's birth
To folks who lived inside As brand new infant clothes were hung So carefully with pride.
The ages of the children could So readily be known By watching how the sizes changed You'd know how much they'd grown.
It also told when illness struck,As extra sheets were hung;Then nightclothes, and a bathrobe, too,Haphazardly were strung.
It said, 'Gone on vacation now' When lines hung limp and bare.
It told, 'We're back!' when full lines sagged With not an inch to spare.
New folks in town were scorned upon If wash was dingy gray, As neighbors carefully raised their brows,And looked the other way..
But clotheslines now are of the past For dryers make work less.
Now what goes on inside a home Is anybody's guess.
I really miss that way of life.
It was a friendly sign When neighbors knew each other best
By what hung on the line!
DATING IN 1957
Ahhhhh. Those were the days.
It's the summer of 1957 and Harold goes to pick up his date, Peggy Sue. Harold's a pretty hip guy with his own car and a duck tail hairdo.
When he goes to the front door, Peggy Sue's mother answers and invites him in: "Peggy Sue's not ready yet, so why don't you have a seat?" she says.
Peggy Sue's mother asks Harold what they're planning to do.
Harold replies politely that they will probably just go to the malt shop or to a drive in movie.
Peggy Sue's mother responds, "Why don't you kids go out and screw? I hear all the kids are doing it.
" Naturally this comes as quite a surprise to Harold and he says "Wh...aaat?" "Yeah," says Peggy Sue's mother, "We know Peggy Sue really likes to screw; why, she'd screw all night if we let her!"
Harold's eyes light up and he smiles from ear to ear.
Immediately, he has revised the plans for the evening.
A few minutes later, Peggy Sue comes downstairs in her little Poodle skirt with her saddle shoes, and announces that she's ready to go.
Almost breathless with anticipation, Harold escorts his date out the front door while Mom is saying, "Have a good evening kids," with a small wink for Harold.
About 20 minutes later, a thoroughly disheveled Peggy Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her and screams at her mother:
It's called The Twist!"
Eleven people were hanging on a rope, under a helicopter -10 men and 1 woman.
The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that 1 had to leave, because otherwise they were all going to fall.
They weren't able to choose that person, until the woman gave a very touching speech.
She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.
As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping
LOVE DRUNK PEOPLE
A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
'Not a chance,' says the husband, 'it is 3:00 in the morning!' He slams the door and returns to bed.'Who was that?' asked his wife.
'Just some drunk guy asking for a push,' he answers.
'Did you help him?' she asks.
'No, I did not, it is 3:00 in the morning and it is pouring rain out there!' 'Well, you have a short memory,' says his wife.
'Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!'
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pounding rain. He calls out into the dark, 'Hello, are you still there?' 'Yes,' comes back the answer.
'Do you still need a push?' calls out the husband.
'Yes, please!' comes the reply from the dark.
'Where are you?' asks the husband.
'Over here.....on the swing,'
replied the drunk.
Now I lay me Down to sleep
I pray the Lord
My shape to keep
Please no wrinkles
Please no bags
And please lift my butt before it sags.
Please no age spots
Please no gray
And as for my belly,
Please take it away
Please keep me young,
