THE PRINCIPAL USE OF GRANDMA’S APRON WAS TO PROTECT THE DRESS UNDERNEATH, BUT ALONG WITH THAT, IT SERVED AS A POTHOLDER FOR
REMOVING HOT PANS FROM THE OVEN.

IT WAS WONDERFUL FOR DRYING CHILDREN’S TEARS, AND ON OCCASION
WAS EVEN USED FOR CLEANING OUT DIRTY EARS.

FROM THE CHICKEN COOP, THE APRON WAS USED FOR CARRYING EGGS,
FUSSY CHICKS, AND SOMETIMES HALF-HATCHED EGGS TO BE FINISHED
IN THE WARMING OVEN.

WHEN COMPANY CAME, THOSE APRONS WERE IDEAL HIDING PLACES FOR
SHY KIDS.

AND WHEN THE WEATHER WAS COLD, GRANDMA WRAPPED IT AROUND HER
ARMS.

THOSE BIG OLD APRONS WIPED MANY A PERSPIRING BROW, BENT OVER
THE HOT WOOD-STOVE.

CHIPS AND KINDLING WOOD WERE BROUGHT INTO THE KITCHEN IN THAT
APRON.

FROM THE GARDEN, IT CARRIED ALL SORTS OF VEGETABLES. AFTER THE
PEAS HAD BEEN SHELLED, IT CARRIED OUT THE HULLS.

IN THE FALL, THE APRON WAS USED TO BRING IN APPLES THAT HAD
FALLEN FROM THE TREES.

WHEN UNEXPECTED COMPANY DROVE UP THE ROAD, IT WAS SURPRISING
HOW MUCH FURNITURE THAT OLD APRON COULD DUST IN A MATTER OF
SECONDS.

WHEN DINNER WAS READY, GRANDMA WALKED OUT ONTO THE PORCH,
WAVED HER APRON, AND THE MEN KNEW IT WAS TIME TO COME IN FROM
THE FIELDS TO DINNER.

IT WILL BE A LONG TIME BEFORE SOMEONE INVENTS SOMETHING THAT
WILL REPLACE THAT ‘OLD-TIME APRON’ THAT SERVED SO MANY WORTH-
WHILE PURPOSES.

REMEMBER:

GRANDMA USED TO SET HER HOT BAKED APPLE PIES ON THE WINDOW
SILL TO COOL.

HER GRANDDAUGHTERS SET THEIRS ON THE WINDOW SILL TO THAW.

THEY WOULD GO CRAZY NOW TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY GERMS
WERE ON THAT APRON.

I DON’T THINK I EVER CAUGHT ANYTHING FROM AN APRON—
EXCEPT LOVE.

God Bless Texas!

An Arab, A Mexican and a girl from Texas are in the same bar.

When the Mexican finishes his beer, he throws his glass into the air, pulls out his pistol, and shoots the glass to pieces. He says: In Mexico, our glasses are so cheap, we don’t need to drink with the same one twice.

The Arab, obviously impressed by this, drinks non-alcohol beer (cuz he’s a muslim!) throws his glass into the air, pulls out his AK-47 and shoots the glass to pieces. He says: In the Arab world we have so much sand to make glasses we have no need to drink with the same one twice either.

The cool Texas girl. picks up her beer, downs it in one gulp, throws her glass into the air, whips out her 45, and shoots the Mexican and the Arab. Catching her glass, setting it on the bar, and calling for a refill, she says: In Texas, we have so many illegal aliens that we don’t have to drink with the same ones twice.

Planet Earth at Twilight

Explanation: No sudden, sharp boundary marks the passage of day into night in this gorgeous view of ocean and clouds over our fair planet Earth. Instead, the shadow line or terminator is diffuse and shows the gradual transition to darkness we experience as twilight. With the Sun illuminating the scene from the right, the cloud tops reflect gently reddened sunlight filtered through the dusty troposphere, the lowest layer of the planet’s nurturing atmosphere. A clear high altitude layer, visible along the dayside’s upper edge, scatters blue sunlight and fades into the blackness of space. This picture was taken in June of 2001 from the International Space Station orbiting at an altitude of 211 nautical miles. Of course from home, you can check out the Earth Now.

The Auto Editor:  What’s going on with Mercedes, LL ?

The Energy Cat:  Mercedes has a car that goes 620 miles without recharging.

https://www.the-sun.com/motors/5127405/mercedes-benz-electric-car-range/

https://www.whatcar.com/news/2023-mercedes-vision-eqxx-electric-car-revealed-price-specs-and-release-date/n23934

The starting price appears to be around $145,000.  America should provide a free one to all members of the HOR, Senate, and the Supremes.

TAE:  Are the facts listed bonified, TEC ?

They sure are, here are our fact checkers–better than CNN, MSNBC, and the other MSM members.  Liars wouldn’t have honest fact checkers.

This is a happy Checker.
