We used to drink out of the creek too.

My older brothers and I used to haul water in milk cans up from the creek that cut across our Northern Michigan property every day for my mom to use.

One day she was upstream picking blue berries and found a deer carcass in the creek that had been there for quite awhile.

To be sure, she got a new well dug shortly after that, but every time I get a chance to drive that way I pull over, get out, climb down the sandy bank to the culvert that passes under the road and grab a couple of handfuls of that cold, sweet, tannin-tinged elixir!

Rubberized water. The best on blazing hot summer days. (Or should it be daze) ?

My uncle farmed and ranched north of Rapid City,South Dakota. Sometimes when I was a kid I would go up and work for him in the summer and pal around with my cousin. They had a poor well but the neighbors about a mile and a half west had a good one with a hand pump. We would drive the '28 Model A coupe with a pickup box in the back full of milk cans up there,fill them up,and have water for cooking,washing,etc. The Good Ol' Days!

I even made a drinking fountain out of a hose and an orange crate on end! Tasted a bit rubbery, but it was cold water on a hot day! I made a drinking dish for the dog by putting the bowl under the faucet and let it drip just a little. That worked fine until one day when the water froze!

Whenever I get a hose like that, this one insist that her tongue be closest to the end.
