We finally talked Judy into getting a new washer & she brought her old one down to fill with mums (that's a joke). I do remember when my Mom used to wash in one of these and run that laundry through the ringer. Then take it out and hang it all on the line -- for a family of 10.
Judy made the scarecrow.
The bittersweet is gorgeous this year. We've had rains all summer and not too much heat so should be an amazing fall. If you haven't ever seen the Ozarks in the fall, you don't know what you're missing.
