    THE HISTORY OF APRONS: top

    The History of  'APRONS'

    I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of
    Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only
    had a few. It was also because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses
    and aprons used less material.   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 folk 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 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 - but love...
