A tire swing and a tree.the new giant play structures don't even compare. My childhood tire swing was hung from the big old maple tree in our backyard - "horizontally" - so I could sit in it like an inner tube - talk about fun!
I can still smell our laundry hanging in the sunshine, bleached white, with blueing added for extra whiteness. I hear the squeak of the clothesline reel, the fluttering of the clothes in the breeze. Laundry was an all-day event. Ironing was on Tuesday.
