A few years back
my mother showed me
the Ironing Board
from the house where she grew up in Cape Breton.
In case you think Winston is my Grandfather,
Winston was the horse
And horses were important on a farm.
The Ironing Board diary
recorded the weather,
It was snowy and cold too, on January 2, 1956.
You could also practice a future signature
in cursive handwriting,
The Ironing Board Dairy
named the big celebrations.
Kathleen Campbell (cousin),
Graduate Nurse, May 1961.
The Ironing Board Diary
is a celebration of the ordinary in the midst of the everyday.
I wonder what lasting mark you will make today?
