An Excerpt: "Here are aprons designed primarily to defend your dresses, and aprons designed promarily for conquests. The former are as attractive as they are sensible; the latter are the merest wiffs of femininity - demure or coquettish. Here are aprons for gifts, aprons for bazaars and fairs, and aprons for around-the-clock sechedule in the home. Here, too, are aprons designed with an eye to the costumes to be worn under them. Do you wear slacks?...Do you act as cook even when you re giving a dinner party..." An Ode to the Apron! The principal use of Grandma s apron was to protect the dress underneath, but along with that, it served as a potholder 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. And 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: 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. They would go crazy now trying to figure out how many germs were on that apron. I don t think I ever caught anything from a Apron.
