Back in the old days...our hot water was heated in the teakettle and we took our "baths" from a pan in the kitchen sink. Ivory soap is what mom bought. It made me itch. I probably didnt get all the soap washed off. Lol
The outhouse was about 50 feet from the house. A two seater! But we were always uptown cos we had rolls of real toilet paper and at grandmas there was the old sears catalog. At one point grandmas outhouse had a resident pet crow that could say " Hello"!
Our inside bathroom was furnished with a white enameled bucket(?) and lid. We used this at night and during inclement weather. Grandma and Grandpa had a a small bathroom installed in the late fifties but our house didn't get one till around 1965. Times, how they have changed!
My great granny was Cherokee and Irish; I was expecting her outhouse to be rough because of her working outside all the time. Boy, was I surprised when at 5 years old I walked in her outhouse and found nice, burgundy carpet.Lol. I never saw another outfitted like hers.We had an old metal bucket and a rickety, wooden one.No carpeting.

I still have that white granite thunder mug with a lid with a red ring around the lid. It is just a conversation piece-collectable these days. I also have a similar colored water dipper that hangs on my wall. It was used to dip water from the metal water bucket and every one drank from it. There was also one hanging out by the spring where you could get a drink of cold spring water, but it rusted away years ago. They sold patches for those things in those days. It was just a small round beveled piece of metal with a fat screw that plugged any leak holes.

Old antique beds set higher off the floor so that the thunder mug could sit under the bed and not be tripped over when one got out of the bed wearing their Union Suit with a trap door in the back of the long johns.

A murder of crows have been harassing a falcon all morning. No wonder they call it a murder of crows. It looks like a regular old aerial battle will continue to be pitched until the young falcon leaves the territory. I dont think he done a thing to those crows. Maybe the crows are in cahoots with the rabbits?

In my spare bedroom I have my great grandparents furniture. The bed does set higher than modern furniture and I keep camping cots stored under there for visiting kids to sleep on. The bedside table has a lower shelf and that's where I keep the chamber pot. It was a steal for $5 at a thrift store. It's marked: ironstone china. J&S Meakin. Hanley. England. It's snowy white and in mint condition. Under the shelf, sitting on the floor is a ceramic bowl and pitcher set made during the early 1980's ceramic craft craZe. But that's okay. It looks good. Lol

The chest of drawers that goes with the bed had a sweet little treasure that I found. On the top drawer, on the outside of the side panel of the drawer , I found where my great aunt had written her name ! Kids are still the same, aren't they? "Get out of my chair!" "It's not your chair. Your name's not on it!" "Is so my chair, see my name down on the chair leg?" "Mommmm, make her get out of my chair!" I can hear my aunt! " get out of my drawer! Mommmm, make her get out of my drawer!" "Is so my drawer ...See my name? Right there!" Lol

There is an old story about a couple in an old Western 1890s hotel with a pitcher-bowl and a chamber pot. The guy tossed the contents out the 2nd floor window and hit some guy below. He screamed up "Is that urine"? The reply was "No, that's hearn, mine will be down later". LOL

for lala, just too cute. Cats are hilarious.
Cat playing possum gives dog the surprise of its life
We open on a scene of tragedy, confusion, apprehension. There is a dog standing over the inert body of a cat that appears to be dead. The dog is perplexed. He seems almost mournful, in shock over the situation. But surprise! The cat is not dead. In fact, it's anything but, which turns the whole thing into a Looney Tunes episode, especially thanks to the soundtrack. Spoiler alert: Hilarity ensues.

It's just too hot! We have a 4 ton geothermal system and I can cool the house to any temp I want most days. But the last couple of days 74 is the best I can do during the daytime. At night it's back to normal but when it's 94 and Real Feal is 98, I guess it's doing all it can!I read somewhere once that the best any unit can do is 20 degrees cooler than outside so I'm not going to call in tech support. I just hate to hear it running down there all day without a break......!
