19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Monday, June 22, 1914: Had quite a time at rubbing and washing today, and it wasn’t here at home either. We are going to have the church fixed over, and it was necessary to wash off the walls. One girl upset her bucket of water off a step ladder. Had to laugh. I was up near the ceiling, and my laughing made me dizzy. Came down off that ladder and staid down. Didn’t want a fate like the bucket.

What fun. . . and what a mess! Did they use an O-Cedar Mop to clean it up?
