We are having a terrible storm. On the generator. the workers are using the generator power between rains.
Today’s exciting entry!
I was 17 before I used a real shower for a bath. Up until then a shower was something I ran thru on the way to the YMCA pool because you had to take a bath before entering.
I always thought that was sort of silly, take a bath before getting in all that water. Besides the shower was always COLD.
My first showers were community showers where 70 men tried to use 15 shower heads in fifteen minutes. So there were about 30 men at a time taking a shower. By the time I got to the water it was adjusted, no problem.
I always adjust the shower by reaching thru the curtain to test it before getting in. It the arrangement is not good for that, I get in and hold my wash rag over the shower head and adjust it.
I admire you folk who can get in and turn it on (ICE COLD) and wait for the correct temp. WHoa, I cannot take that.
The one in the motor home is good, It has a detachable shower head and I can adjust it while pointing it at my feet.
I think it should be a rule that the guy adjusts the water for the gal (with eyes shut of course). This to keep her from adverse cold shock or scalding herself, strictly humanitarian, that is me, a humanitarian..
I am lying, I just remembered my first showers. They were in the summer, in the country at High Shoals. In the hot summer mama would get the hose pipe and let me and Shirl run thru it. That was a delight. Towards the end of the play time, she added a little soap to me. That wasn’t necessary for girls, for some reason they were born clean and stayed that way. Their hair must have kept dirt from being behind their ears too. I never did see mama wash Shirl’s ears, but mine? She scrubbed them.
Have you had your bath today???? We passed a barn the other day that had tin tubs hanging on the side. Brought back a lot of memories of those baths in a tin tub.
(And then there is this, from up in Mel, Darla & Cher’s country)
Thanks for coming this way
Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the
ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."
The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."
Washed or not, This I would be something to enjoy on a slow weekend:
