As I bake more bread and do laundry I have a question since my sink is full of my silk things, "Do you hand wash yer silks or do you machine wash them? I always hand wash them and hang them to dry. ;D

lol... I'm guessing your neck ties or bandanas?

I throw my delicates in the washing machine on a delicate cold water cycle, hang to dry. If its REALLY delicate, I put them inside a pillow case and tie it shut.

I have no silk other than neck ties that I try real hard to keep clean. I do have lots of wool that gets hand washed and air dried flat.

Don't tell anyone at camp, but I throw the silk kerchiefs in with the linen shirts and cotton skirts. They have survived a good two years of that type of treatment and not gotten thread bare around the edges at all.

Now, I wonder if they have survived storage for the past five years.

My rule of thumb on modern stuff though, I tend to hand wash and lay flat to dry.

And yeah, I'm curious as to "what silks" you are washing too?!?! LOL

Oh, and pass me some bread.

I have washed dish towels on a wash board and hung them at events, it ain't no fun unless there are tourists to see it. ;D

BTW you should see the double takes I get at work sometimes when I'm at the desk on the computor. ;D

Of course a quick flick of my remote for my stereo will put this up on the 8 nice speakers the got my along with the 100 CD changer and nice amp. ;D

Fella named Dan Roberts does this.

Well I hires on to this brand new ranch,
it was owned by a bunch of fancy pants
but they did have several high dollar trucks and trailers
Well there was barns and pens that was under construction
and I was informed by phone I'd receive my instruction
in a video arriving in a padded mailer
It said sort the cows in pen 11,
and then bring us the tags so we can scan 'em
and I didn't have a clue but I took a sack full of ‘em to headquarters
There was a lady at a computer typing in numbers,
and the more she typed the more I felt dumber
And she said "Yep 501's too old gotta go back and sort her" and I replied,

I ain't no cowhand, cowhand.com,
I don't know were I just landed scroll me back to were I'm from
Cause I don't need no print out telling me that its time to wean
never seen a calf pulled by a machine
and this information highway keeps my pony sore and lean
I ain't no cowhand.com

Well my security pass slash photo ID,
opened the gate and picked out a horse for me
and you punch in a code and it would start an automatic feeder
course you still had to step over what them cows are downloading,
and you did hair analysis with a digital modem
and put a cow up on a screen and it'd tell you which bull's gonna breed her

well then they give me this laptop for my saddlebags
and it got dusty out riding drag
and I knew the boss was gonna have my hide
well they said just boot it up, open the windows,
something about a mouse and a bunch of menus
so I hauled off and kicked it, I kept the windows closed,
cause it was freezing outside

I ain't no cowhand, cowhand.com,
I don't know were I just landed scroll me back to were I'm from
Cause I don't need no print out telling me which stall to clean
never seen a horse shod by a machine
and this information highway keeps my pony sore and lean
I ain't no cowhand.com

well then they start talking downsizin' and linkin' up
I told 'em I was heading for the tall and the uncut
they could stick that pentium right in their AOL
they was faxing emails and hazing the web,
and they even had a megabite ram and that sounds inbred
I recon' those people would'nt know the difference
between a hard drive and a paper trail

I ain't no cowhand, cowhand.com,
I don't need no information higway to get back to where I'm from
and I don't need no printout telling me which colt is green
never seen a bronc broke by a machine
besides this little cell phone just don't fit good in my jeans
I ain't no cowhand.com
I ain't no HTTP://all one word, all little letters, www.cowhand.com
Yep that’s what you get when you try to cross one of them computers
with a cowboy

Only if he is still at "camp". I was out to a camp one year for 3 weeks or more. Our group had hosted the event and I was very thankful for my giant wash tub. Not only for the laundry that need doin' but it was June/July and dippin' my toes in some cold water was great some afternoons.

And some of the questions......."Is that a real fire?" :eek:

I found it amazing back in '97. We would meet new people at camp, and inevitably we would have to exchange emails or web adds around the campfire......LOL

You are giving me a mighty powerful canvas itch today Glen. ;) I think I might have to look up some old friends soon.

Yes I have been asked if that was a real fire and if that was real food. ;D
