    I just hope you’re not looking for a job as an editor.

    RE: Blog……………

    Ha, don’t worry about it Teresa. After all I am someone.

    And it didn’t take very long at all to get those cats stacked up anyway. :)

    You mean you’re not interested in a career in fertilizers or decoys?

    The blog: The fish and the chicken might seem innocent if it weren’t for the strange thing their eyes seem to imply…….
    Love the guy writing under the table with his shadow? or his public persona? sitting on the table.

    Re Blog, Russian hat…
    I always thought that Astrakhan was the name of the looped cotton fabric.

    Speaking of Frog Blog:


    No Way!

    My mom had a washing machine just like that. One day, I guess I was about four years old, Mom was doing a load of wash and while she was in the backyard I was playing with the electric ringer of the washer, running a wet rag through it.

    The rag got caught in the ringer and in my attempt to get it out my hand slipped into the ringer and it began to eat up my hand, my wrist, and my arm. My screams brought my mom into the garage and she unplugged the washing machine, loosened the ringer, and withdrew my arm.

    It had been eaten up to the elbow.

    A quick visit by the doctor (yes, they made house calls in those days,) an Epsom salt bath for my arm (whatever happened to that stuff?) and a sling fixed me right up.

    But those ringer washing machines could walk, they could talk, and they were very mean and hurtful to little boys.

    Apparently it’s also the name of the wool used in making these hats. Materials seem to have varied (one source said they were sometimes made from the wool of aborted lambs. Ick.) The sources I looked at called them “astrakhans” and “astrakhan hats.” Those were WW I sources and they may have been citing English-language reports from the era.

    Yes, a mistake like that on Google could easily cost a whole day.

    Ah, memories. Couple of the Italians in the neighborhood rigged up a ringer washer as a wine press. Actually worked as I remember.
    My grandmother still used a wringer as late as the early 80’s when she was in her late 80’s.

    RE the Blog’ Get what you wish
    I’m always disturbed when I see ‘lucky’ horsehoes with the ends pointing down, as I was brought up to believe that the luck runs out that way. I gather that some believe that the ends pointing down means that the luck can spread around. Has anyone got experimental evidence either way?
