Hi Y'all; I haven't posted much lately because its spring and i have been soooo busy. A few days back I ordered one of those James Hand Washers, (now called Lehman's best hand washer), anyway we were all so excited when the DHL truck pulled up and delivered it. Now, I had wanted one for ten years and finally had enough money for it. My dh and I assembled it and I thought it one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. Well, I put in a bit of laundry soap added some water a few clothes, more water and then began pulling the lever back and forth. I was delighted!! After a few minutes my neighbor dropped by wanting to know what had been delivered. I pointed down to my washing machine while I happily went on washing the clothes and explained what it was i was doing. Instead of joinging in our happiness over the new machine my lovely, jewel of a neighbor angrily says: "Just look at you washing clothes with that thing. When I want to wash clothes I just plug in the machine and turn it on. You slavin' over that thing has set the women's back at LEAST a hundred years!" You know it is amazing just how clean that Lehman's Hand Washer gets clothes, especially when anger makes the already easy to operate machine oh so powerful! tamilee P.S. I also LOVE wringing the clothes out with the wringer.
