Remember old times

As I was taking a hot shower this morning I thought about growing up in rural Arkansas. Back then a shower was outside and it involved rain.

Bathing involved a galvanized bathtub that had to be drug inside and placed in the kitchen next to the heated cookstove, which in the winter was full of welcoming warmth, but not so much in the summer. The tub was filled with buckets of heated water and then you took a bath, but not every day as that was too much work.
