Today, after I had drug the garden hose all over the yard giving all my looking like death dried up plants some more water, I hung clothes on the line.
I was standing there, clothes pin in hand, wearing the hanky skirt I had found for a dollar and the cami top with no support in it whatsoever (I had slept in it), my hair in a bun with it all falling over my face and the rooster crowing from the chicken coop when it dawned on me...
I had turned into Ma Kettle.
We grew up watching all the Ma and Pa Kettle movies. I had laughed at that silly Ma Kettle.
And had suddenly become her.
So, I hurried with the laundry, took a shower, downed another cup of coffee to look awake, wore my most supportive bra and while my hair is in a bun, it is at least sorta stylish. I am in shorts and tank top. I still look a bit unkempt...but not that unkempt.
How long have I been Ma Kettle and not known it???
And here is a video clip to make you laugh. Not of her feeding the kids or of laundry but funny just the same.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bfq5kju627c
