WASHDAY BLUE: There' an old story with a new twist going the round about -an Ottawa woman who was doing her washing one hot day this Summer.' She was down in tha basement putting the washing in the machine, and figured, because she was all atone in the house and it was hot, to throw what she was wearing Into the wash. She did this, and a aha was standing around waiting for the stuff to get clean, sh decided to paint the basement ceiling. When he suited the Job a couple of drop of paint fell on her head, so aha went tip to her son's room and got hia football helmet. She put it-on for protection against the paint and continued her chore.. Suddenly she heard a knock at the door, th footstep down the stair.
