Just recently I paid a visit to My Uncle Fossill up in Podunk County Tennessee.I was quiet surprized to see a huge structure in the front yard of Uncle Fossills little lof cabin,Uncle Fossill was sitting outside the structure,it was sort of like a huge privacy fence with a sign above the gate that read Korntry londrematte! U.Fossill,proprietor.A large crowd of people were gathered there in a line and I noticed that each person had a live chicken,a dozen eggs and assorted other types of groceries,each would approach Uncle Fossill,hand him the objects and Uncle Fossill would hand them a colored stick,the sticks were red or blue or white or black,then the people would proceed through the gate with their clothing baskets.
I asked Uncle Fossill if I could peek inside His laundrymat and he said "Boy,"(uncle fossill always calls me Boy)"O course yew kin peek inside,Ima really proud of this cheer bussiness."
I peeked inside the gate and saw 4 huge iron wash pots,each with it's respective fire burning with water boiling inside and people putting thier clothes into the boiling water,each pot was colored blue,red white and black.
Uncle Fossill's ingenuity never ceases to amaze me!
