    My Mom had 4 boys, but I am the one that is most like her too (both in looks and in personality).  I like a clean house too but am not as neurotic as my Mom was.  And just like your Mum, my Mom sure knew how to stretch a dollar.  Thanks for sharing your memories of your Mum with me.  Happy Mother's Day Nellie!

    If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.

      Nellie Pledge was some character or another in a  tv show that dad just picked up the name and called mum that, along with Madame Lazonga, he does not have any idea where that one may have come from. It somehow stuck for decades as far as mum's cleaning habits because of the Pledge tie in. He saw my comment here and called to relive the whole remodel fiasco and laugh about it.

      Don't watch it dad, you will have brain cells jumping to their suicide. Me, when I learned dad had been watching Fox.
