    I'm back. I missed y'all. Just been dealing with allergies and heat and humidity and air conditioning and severe dry eyes. The temps went from 60's -- to almost 90 with high humidity. Ugh. I hate this weather.

    Anyways, here's a game to ponder. I'll call it "PICS FROM THE PAST". I may have to split it into two volumes. I don't know how many pics I can post on a single thread! LOL

    Good Luck! I'm sure y'all will guess them. Share some memories if you remember the pics.

    Hi Diane

    Even healthy people would have trouble with 90 degree heat and high
    humidity. Will try and post some guesses for your quiz, but the computer
    is acting up.

    1 is a clock or a clock and barometer. Hard to tell.
    2 looks like a candy apple. Or maybe it's a straw in an exotic glass.

    3 is a Shaker clothespin.
    4 is a deep fryer.

    5 is an early dishwasher.

    I'll let GB tackle part two.

    Hi y'all --

    You got almost all of them! :)

    I went to wiki and found "American Inventions".


    Picture 1: BANJO CLOCK

    Picture 2 is indeed a candy apple. Oh, I used to love those!!!!

    Picture 3: Wiki calls this a wooden clothespin, not to be confused with a Shaker Clothespin.

    I can remember helping my mom and grandma hanging clothes outside, using wooden clothespins. Sheets and blankets smelled so wonderful, from the fresh air.

    Pictures 4/1 and 4/2 are related. They are dishwashers! The first one is manual; the second is electric.

    I never had a dishwasher growing up, until I moved into my own apartment in the early 80's. Later on in my life, my dad and I were manual "dishwashers", and cooks and prep cooks, etc. Especially when preparing a Thanksgiving meal. LOL

    Great guessing y'all! I've missed being on the Board.

    Hugs, Diane
