A bath on a Saturday night would sure cool you off. A splash with a bar of soap and a brush out on the back porch would be a good way to end the day.

When I was a little kid sometimes we would go to the pool. But there were a lot of days when mom would set up two tubs in the yard and fill them with water. By the afternoon the water would be warm and me and my brother would splash until the water was gone, and that was the end of that. We would be clean and cool for a while.

Make of it, What you will!

The tub may be small for this guy but I thought it easier to draw and less risque than,
Rub a Dub Dub three men in a tub. After all this is a family site.
