My Pa was teaching my sister and I the button accordian before he passed. He left his first ever accordian to me which stays high up on display but the children love to play the accordian he brought for me to learn on. You have bought back some lovely memories tonight. Thankyou.

Im with you Suse, Im from Australia and have never owned a dryer in my life. Wooden clothehorse for winter and also the backs of chairs do the trick. We also have a closet where our hot water service is. We find that if we need clothes dry for the next day this is the best spot to put them.
