The Bath (some pictures are gross, not xxx just sorta gross)
A Lawyer leaving the Country club was approached by a man asking for money? He was dirty, needed a shave and his clothes were ragged.
“If I give you some money will you buy beer?” ‘No sir, I quit!’
“Will you play golf?” ‘No sir,’ (lauging)
“Will you go somewhere and buy a bath and shave?” ‘Nope, Imma buy a hamburger.”
“Come home with me and I will give you $20 and a good meal.”
“Why would you do that?”
“I want to show my wife a man who doesn't drink, play golf or bath.”
Bathing… I don’t think boys particularly liked baths. I have wondered if I had floating ducks and toys would I have liked it better. BUT, it all started when mama had us take a bath in the kitchen. She brought in one of her wash tubs. They were the galvanized tubs used washing clothes. She heated water and the baths started. Pecking order was: Babies, girls and then boys. Hinting that the boys were the dirtiest.
I was fortunate, we had a bathtub when I was in the 4th grade. Sherry did not have one until we were married and moved into our little trailer with a small bath tub with hot and cold running water.
Since then Baths have varied, some unique. The Sauna, steam bath (once or twice), hot springs (North Carolina, Texas & Yukon). Then there was also the Hot tub and the most used the shower.
Today I saw pictures of an Iranian who had not bathed in 60 years.
He smoked cigarettes folks gave him, when no cigarettes are available, he smokes dried feces.
He said he was happier than most folks because he had NO possessions. He survives eating Carrion.
Us boys don't like baths, but this dude carried it to the extreme!
Have you always had a bathtub with hot and cold running water?
