CW, looks about same coloring as the horse in your avatar.

I remember my 1st Breyer horse, way back early 60's, It was a model they have done in many colors over the years. Mine was much the same color as Elwood.

I picked it out at a restaurant with a gift shop we always stopped at on the way to Grandma Hancock's, There was a stuffed bear, and a real wooden Indian there.

I think my youngest daughter (aka Trooper's rider) is correct. All babies look a little like Winston Churchill.

That kid does not look like Winston. That kid looks human and that is a complement.
Mine looked like some thing out of a horror sicence fiction movie mixed with ET.

Yesterday I brought my clothes in from the clothesline. Anyone still use those?

My mother taught me, when I was a little girl, how to hang clothes and that fresh, wonderful smell always brings back those memories to me. We lived in the suburbs so the way you put the clothes on the line was important, in a particular order, because the neighbours would see it.

I still remember that, I still sort the clothes before I hang them, they are all in order and uniform, colourfully blowing in the breeze and soaking up all that fresh air. I love the slightly scratchy towels (and they absorb better when you use them after a shower!) and the smell of my sheets at night.

Such a simple thing, but powerful in memories.

I actually did start to do that here but the birds kept pooping on my washing so I gave up.
I used to dry like that in the UK too but only in the sort of weather when all the locals didn't have their woodburners going as it made everything smell of smoke
