Grandma's apron

I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principle use of Grandma's apron: protect the dress underneath because she only had a few.

It was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons used less material.

It served as a potholder when removing hot pans from the oven.

It dried children's tears, and sometimes used to clean out dirty ears.

From the chicken coop, an apron carried eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

When company came, 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 a 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 peas were shelled, it carried out hulls.

In fall, the apron brought in apples after they fell off the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in seconds.

When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and men folk knew it was time to come in from the fields for dinner.

It will be a long time before someone invents something to replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes.

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.

Today “Do-Gooders” would go crazy trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron.

I don't think I ever caught anything from an apron - but love.
