A memory from my cousin:
“All children under age of 18 must wear full bath towel around neck to protect from red gravy”.
Frances. Forever ultra-vigilant in her desire to keep us grandkids devoid of splatter. We didn’t have a say in the matter either. As soon as we sat at her kitchen table she would fasten these excessively over-sized, absorbent cloths around our hungry necklines with a safety pin – giant protective bibs.
