Here it is Saturday again!! When I saw this adorable icon it made me think of when I was a little girl and we had a bath once a week on Saturday nights!!! Yes, Grams is that old!! I know we did take sponge baths during the week!
Back in the 50's our neighbors had a bunch of kids and had a big wash tub. They heated the water and then each one of the kids took turns taking a bath!! Once a week on Saturday night!
By this time my folks had a real bathroom and it had a real tub in the bathroom! Oh that was so nice!!
But back in the 1940's when I was a little girl we didn't have a bath room and we had an outhouse! And sure enough we did use the old sears catalog for toilet paper!!!
After I was married one farm house that we lived in didn't have a bathroom either!! We had an outhouse! In the winter we had a chamber pot that had to be emptied every morning!! UGH!! This was in the early 60's! I was so happy when we moved back into town after living out there on a house back from the main road on a lane!! It turned out to be one of the record snow years we have had in Jackson County!! So of course we were snowed in a lot and stuck in the ditch over and over!! I don't think we good snow tires like we have now!
The new baby comes home today! On Thursday when we went tearing up there to see him we didn't take our camera with us! No kidding!! But someone else took a picture of me holding baby Marcello! I am so happy for that! As soon as they send the E-mail with this picture I will post it!!!
