I mentioned winning the apron on my blog the other day. In response to my post, my grandma emailed this brief story from a magazine she reads. I dont know which but I thought Id share

Grandma's apron
Was there any job it couldn't do?

story / VIOLA CULVER, SANTEE, CALIFORNIA

Iremember aprons; do you? I don't think our kids know what
an apron is anymore. The principal use of Grandma's apron
was to protect her dress, but the apron did so much more. It
served as a pot holder for removing hot pans from the oven, and
to wipe her brow when the weather was almost as hot as that old
woodstove. When the weather was cold, Grandma wrapped the
apron around her arms. 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. Wood chips and kindling were brought into
the kitchen in an apron.
From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas
had been shelled, it carried out the hulls. In the fall, it 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. And aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. When
dinner was ready, Grandma waved her apron from the porch, and
the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to eat .
It will be a long time before someone invents something as useful
and versatile as the old - fashioned apron.

I've gotten something similar to that in my e-mail a couple of times, usually accompanied with some smart aleck comment about "modern" women trying to figure out just how many germs would be on that old apron.

I really should start wearing one when I cook, I have to wear one at work and have gotten used to having it on.
