Well, I guess I get to bask in the newspaper glory once again. I was informed by my neighbor that another article has come out about my collection. And yes, I went to the local store and bought a newspaper on the news stand. While this article is almost identical to the other, this time the pictures are in color.
Since my last blog entry, I have received several text messages and notifications from friends and family that are sending me nail aprons from around the country. I am, to say the least, beside myself and truly blessed. I am very happy they are so thoughtful. But, what is also making happy is that other people are taking up the collection themselves. It’s a worthwhile venture to preserve history. I rather doubt that there will be a museum housing these garments but, who know’s for sure. But, until then, these grubby aprons will still continue to amaze me, just that someone long ago was wearing this garment while they were cutting rafters in the hot sun.
Take up the cause and preserve history.
