Grandma's Apron

The Principle Use Of Grandma's Apron Was To Protect The Dress Underneath
But Along With That It Served As A Holder 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
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 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 This!

"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"

Merry Christmas
