LARD, SOAP AND WASH WATER: Mom used an old black, iron kettle for rendering lard, making soap and heating wash water. This kettle was located about 25 yards from our back porch. It was mounted on rocks and heated by a wood fire.


WATER FOR LAUNDRY; WATER FOR DRINKING: Water for laundry was carried from the "old dug well." This well also provided water for chickens and turkeys. Water for cooking and drinking was drawn from a well located at the corner of our back porch.


WATER FOR THE ANIMALS: Animals got water from the pond. If animals were calving, or sick or if the water was frozen, Dad and sons carried water in five gallon buckets for them.
