Filed under the category, "I have no idea what they were thinking" is the clothesline at our house.
First, the location is weird... right in the middle of the yard and set on a sidewalk that goes nowhere.
Second there was a plastic-coated wire for the line which was rusted and broken.
But since the posts are not easily moved, I decided to at least make it useful.
I found some cotton cord at the hardware store and Hubba helped me tighten the line.
I'm not certain how often we will use the line since we have livestock, some of our neighbors have livestock and we're very close to a dairy. So sometimes the aromas are not what you want on freshly laundered clothing, but at least we now have a place to hang our stinky work-out clothes outside. ;-)
