July Celebrations Among My Relatives and Ancestors

Another month!  It seems like I posted the June birthdays and anniversaries just a few days ago.  How fast time goes these days!

July 6 is a record day among my relatives.  My grandmother was born that day and a few decades later my sister's twins were born.  And there are two other more distant relatives who were born on July 6.  July 10 is a big day for my brother and his wife, and for my brother-in-law.  And my aunt was born on the 19th.  Happy Days!

I wonder what it was like to have a July baby in the days before washing machines and dryers.  Think of the mounds of diapers, all washed by hand and hung in the sun to dry.  Work!  Because they didn't know about these labor-saving devices I know they took it all in stride.  Not that I have diapers to wash these days, but thinking of laundry in general and  how easy I have it makes me feel pampered.
