Sepia Saturday - Childhood Chores

Yours Truly Circa 1958



This was the kitchen in our new house in Salisbury. The cabinets you see were crafted by my father. Much of the ranch style house was also built by him.

It was my chore to dry the dishes. In the mid 1960's a dishwasher was installed just about where I am standing. Then my chore was to put away the dishes which I hated. To me putting away the dishes was much less glamorous than drying them.

I don't remember being that small that I had to stand on a chair. But I'll tell you I was small enough that I fit in that sink you see there for bath time. I have a photo to prove it. lol
