Without Water

Evening without water.
How hard life must have been
for our ancestors.
How soft we have become.

    I remember a saying that said don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.
    Which was because ‘back then’ the tub was filled first for the master of the house, then each in turn used the same water to bath in until at last the ‘baby’ but of course by then the water… ugh. Now one can’t imaging even sharing a shower… Though I have read that some large families do just that.

      Yes, water was so often a luxury. It had to be fetched and heated before use. Very time consuming. No daily showers then. What’s a few hours without compared with that!

    We take water so much for granted. We do not really have a right to it we just think we do.

      It was off for about 4 hours and you get a bit frustrated thinking you can’t even flush the toilet! It makes you think. I agree, we take so much for granted.
