Ragtag Daily Prompt, RDP



  1. I am so proud that I actually knew this word before you used it as a prompt – I had looked it up when I was reading a Conan Doyle story, I think 🙂 Nevertheless: we don’t have one.

  2. The last place I saw antimacassars actually being used was in China on the trains in the 1970’s. They were the old crocheted fancy kind Grandmas used to make. Guess they’ve now gone the way of “Wildroot Cream Oil, Charlie!”

  3. Reading through some of the comments I just realised although we don’t call them antimacassar anymore the principle is still used in airlines with those disposable throws.
