There was a creek that literally ran through our back yard so in the summer months, we all bathed in the creek. In winter months, we only bathed once a week and that was on Saturday night so we would be clean for church on Sunday. I don't recall my mother ever taking a bath though but I'm sure she must have. Same with step father.
My brother usually got the job of taking the pot to the outhouse to dump it. We only used it at night because during the day, we could walk down the path where it stood. When the hole filled up, stepdad would dig another huge hole, then move the outhouse over top of it and toss dirt on the old hole. It was a very normal thing back then but pretty unthinkable these days!!
I had never heard of a bed sheet as a kid. We had a blanket on top and and another on bottom and four of us slept in the same bed. There were 5 kids and 2 adults living in four rooms. Pretty much everyone else in our area lived the same way so we never thought we were poor. However, by today's standards, we would have been considered to live in poverty. Sometimes, I think life was better back then. It was simple. Today, you start learning to use electronics from the moment you're born! My 6 year old great grandson got a very nice laptop for Christmas. He knew exactly how to use it. Imagine that! Definitely a changing world!
