What's your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is lying on my father's bare chest as he rubbed my back to burp me. I remember the sweet smell of his skin and hair. I felt safe and comfortable, as I smelled his smell and felt his chest heave as he took each breath. I was...around 4 to 6 months old.

Oh! Youngins probably know not what a ringer washer is, they'll have to gougal it, we lived in a house that was white I don't remember that house, I do remember the gray house we lived in, we children slept up stairs, girls to the left boys to the right a pot belly coal stove between, we would take a clay brick off the stove wrap it in news paper and put it at our feet under the covers to keep us warm at night, one night being tucked in I saw some webs in the corner of the ceiling, I must of thought they were spider webs, I don't remember what I said to mom but do remember her telling me they were cobwebs, and I asking her where were the cobs:ugh3:

I am old enough to know what a ringer washer is! And I grew up doing something similar to warm up when going to bed in the winter. We used a Ziegler Oil Stove as the only main floor heat (a smaller one was in the basement and only on on wash day or when doing a longer project in the basement). So the folks did not heat the bedrooms. I would take what we called a sheet blanket and warm it up by running it back and forth on the top of the heating stove and then wrap up in it in bed with other blankets over it.

Didn't you mom go on the explain that cobwebs is another term for spiderwebs?
