A lot of time was spent taking care of clothes. After our 100% cotton outfits were worn, they were re-washed and hung out to dry on the clothesline - then heavily starched and ironed. Clothes were stiff and wrinkled very easily - especially when "smootching" with a date.
|I was named after my daddy, Joel Clayton Smith. My parents thought two children were enough, and since they already had one daughter, I was their last chance for a boy. They added an "l" and an "e" to Joel to make Joelle. I loved the name Joelle because it was different, and was disappointed to eventually learn that Joelle is a common name in France.|
