    How cute! My very southern grandmother refused to allow us to hang men and women's underwear on the clothesline at the same time. Had to do men's first and then the women's. She said "the neighbors will talk." Jeepers, have you ever heard of something so strange and funny?

    Well, I have to admit to hanging undies sandwiched in between large, white tea towels. Or is that too much information?!?! LOL
    The sad thing about me is we have a 6' wooden fence all around our backyard, so who's gonna see? Well, my boys!!!

    I say go with it – be brazen! Hang them out there in all their glory! Generally as I prefer underwear that are best described as harvest festivals (because all is safely gathered in) I'd have to be careful. If I hung my bra's on the line, I'd come out to collect them and find two tramps swinging in them. I think I'll leave them on the maiden indoors…..! I do love her dress, it really matches your background, she must have known!

    I am an expat living in the US – I met another english woman who had just moved into town and who was amazed that no one hangs their wash – when she indulged in the lost art her neighbours complained – one saying that the sight of her underwear was disturbing to their 13 year old son ! Some housing estates here forbid washing lines !
