Today’s old A&J is from four years ago. I apologize for being away several days. I have had a busy work schedule this week, and family matters required time as well. It’s a holiday weekend! Are you ready for Washington’s Birthday? Are you ready to purchase new linens and towels? How in the heck do you suppose the tradition of “white sales” to celebrate the birth of the Father of Our Country got started? I grew up in an area devoted to the manufacture of high-quality sheets and towels. I should know the answer, but I don’t.
