Jeez, AW, are you sure you weren't raised Amish?
Our local Amish community uses the gas powered washers but the clothes dryer is solar powered. I have seen a wash machine where the agitator is operated with a hand crank, but as soon as the newlyweds can fit it into their budget, there will be a gas engine wash machine. They have a wood cook stove but I've seen a lot of gas fuel cooking stoves used during the hot months. There's also a wood laundry stove sitting in the laundry room/summer kitchen. One reason I enjoy visiting with them is because that is how my mom and dad lived as youngsters. It gives me a sense of comfort and closeness to my parents.:-)
No, it is just that the Amish have continued to use the same methods that ALL country folk had to employ prior to the early to mid 1950s when there was no electric or running water. The Tennessee Valley Authority and the Rural Electric Coops have brought town style life to the country. But is good to remember the old ways just in case and while a lot of those tools are now just wall decor, I still know how to use them even though I would prefer not to.

I thank you all so kindly. That was a warm welcome. I thank you for the birthday wishes & the advice. I am amazed at technology and how far it has come. I suppose I have watched the birth of many things. I grew up an only child, my father died from appendicitis. My mother had to loan me to other families for house keeping chores and helping women raise babies. Many families did this when they were too poor to survive. My mother rented rooms out to the soldiers that came home from the war. All of your stories have stirred many memories. I laundered many clothes in the wash bucket. Momma never let me walk out the door without the proper attire of the day. She sewed the most magnificent dresses. And bonnets. Women would come from miles to purchase them from her. I thought it a treat to go stay at Uncle Monroe's house in Louisville. We would walk to the stores in town for shopping and that was the biggest treat, and most exciting for a simple farm girl. I remember seeing the sidewalk salesman who offered the newest gadgets, dreaming all the while of owning my own some day. Ahh the ironing we did. Momma believed every thing that was cloth had to be ironed, even the undergarments. I married at 15 and had the first of 8 children by 16. My beloved husband was a carpenter, he was also a war hero but never spoke of the war or the ways he received all of his medals. I am very proud of my children they all worked their own way thru college, which inspired me to attend and get my real estate license. I lost my great husband to a massive heart attack. It was then that my job with the Corps of Engineers took me to wild wild West Virginia. I lived there until they transferred me to Jacksonville, Fl. Upon retirement I came back to the family farm to live with my 4th daughter and her family. She struggled with cancer but thank the good Lord she is still alive and well. My son is now fighting the dreadful disease. I had breast cancer myself. We are all fighters in this family, I must say.
My son in law built the home I live in. While it is simple, it is beautiful to me. Nothing fancy, but my husband would be proud of the craftsmanship. I do water aerobics for my arthritis and doctor appointments are my dates I say. We go to the thrift shops for fun I just love other peoples' junk for some reason. I am a bird watcher, that is what brought me to this chat room. I do not have any pets. My grand daughter seems to think I need a dog. I am considering it. I did have a dog when I was a child tho. My husband never would allow the children to have any. He felt it a waste and with 8 kids not a necessity. I agreed. I had enough to care for. That about sums it up for this boring old lady. I am learning more and more about the chat groups. They do entertain me for sure. The sun its what I miss most about Florida. I wanted to just become a beach combing bag lady after retirement. My children wanted me back in Kentucky. Taking care of my home became too hard for me the repairs that were needed and maintenance were too much. Down there they preyed on us older folks. My toilet needed repair the contractor gave me an estimate of over $500.00 to fix it. He said I needed all sorts of things. One of my grand daughters came to visit and her husband fixed it with a $5.00 part. He became my favorite that day. All of my grand children are great folks tho I do have 2 grand sons that are a complete disappointment but hey we can't have it all. With that many there are bound to be a couple screw balls. I must rest my fingers now but I will come back after dinner and read more of the stories. I do not know if the arthritis caused it or just my vision, but I am 82, not 72. I shall return. Until then may the good Lord keep you safe.

That is why I say it is just amazing the difference in technology in that short span of time after WW2 and the turn of the century when comparing it to the eons that had existed prior to that time.

My grandfather who passed in the 1950s never owned a car, never had electric, never had running water, and never watched television. Nor did we until I reached my teen years and yet my long time career has been in Information Technology. I am blessed to have been able to live in and known both worlds.

Now it is time for me to get off here and do something productive. The chickens are calling my name. LOL Good Day to All.

" You're the reason I changed to beer from soda pop, little darling" I have been trying to find the song with those lyrics in it. Anyone know? I thought the singers were Conway and Loretta, but, I cannot find it.. As a matter of fact, I seem to be the only one that has ever heard that song. Also,'I ain't got no honey baby now.' I sing the parts I know, sounds funny. The animals don't mind at all though. I heard it eases them to sing, so I open up and let her rip.

This popped up just as I was signing off, but the song is by Loretta and it is really "You're the reason our kids are so ugly".

It might be that the magnetics. We're going through a polar shift right now. This isn't just here. Go to youtube and watch suspicious0bservers channel. He explains solar weather and how it affects us down here on earth every morning at 6 AM. It is good information collected from NASA and analyzed by a pretty unbiased and honest guy.

I have not looked yet, but I bet it is "I was born one morning and the sun didn't shine, picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine, loaded 16 tone of number nine coal and the straw boss said well bless my soul"

You load 16 tons and what do you get? another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter don't you call me cause I can't go, I owe my soul to the company store".. I believe Tenn. Ernie Ford. Since it is youtube, I will look and see if I am right.

Hello everyone. Loved reading about the old stories. I learn something every time that I stop in here.@Marilyn: Glad that you have joined in and are sharing your memories. Welcome to the Bird Thread.
@ AW: I really enjoy your immense fund of knowledge, laced with dry humor.
@ Imposter: Hope that you continue to do well.
Keep the stories coming. I find you all most interesting. Beautiful day today. We all need to appreciate the small things in life, especially since we're all here for such a short period of time, in the grand scheme of things.

Correct. Did he also sing, Big Bad John? Might be off on the title.
