Maytag Memories

Journaling by Nicole: When most people think of Maytag, they think of cleaning clothes.  For our family, Maytag meant that and so much more.  For more than 100 years, Maytag was nestled in tiny Newton, Iowa. When we moved there in 1979, we learned about Maytag from all angles – having “Old Lonely,” the friendly repairman, as your homecoming parade grand marshal to having activities shut down for two weeks each July during the plant vacation, to living on engineer row (our street had 5 engineers in all product groupings) to watching the ups and downs of strikes and labor negotiations and the impact on our future, to the final buyout by Whirlpool.

Maytag, as a company, was welcomed into people’s homes as the best cleaning products around. Maytag became part of our lives by us becoming part of their town.

Christmas in the Alps


This shot of Nicole was taken last December.  We had gone up the mountain via electric train and waited for the clouds to clear to see a spectacular view of the Matterhorn.
For the page I used In the Making Design’s Rockin’ Template pack.


I hope you have a rockin’ kind of week.
