My mother must have g~ne to the same washing sclhtyol for ! remember everyone of F.xma's rules, On ttte days I had to help my mother with the wash, my goal was to simply get the clothes dry with the least puss ib le amount of work.That didn't suit my mother who insisted on where and how the clothes had to be hung. Wash day was but one of several days I remember from my childhood including canning days. ironing days, baking days and butler churning days. Not sure why but my least fa,~orite days Welt butler making days. That may have been because my mother preferred making her butter from sour cream, a p~dum not at all tike the sour c-~eam we m)w buyal the grocery store. I thought it [tun ked lx~d. smelled bad and tasted bad but in spite of all thal bad it make delicious butt~.~. Butter making was a multi-any process which started when Dad milked thecow. We shared oneJersey cow with another family. Our milking turn usually came in the morning.

In [Im~ days it wasn't considered fit It+ drink for we always drank whole, One friend even m:lded additional cream to hi,,, milk before drinking= ]'he collected cream was stored tbr days, perhaps weeks in the refrigerator awaiting churning day.
