A Tub for Two

Elizabeth and Cub always end up in the tubs for a "swim" on the days we put up corn... it reminds me of when I was a little kid and I went "swimming" at my best friend (and 3rd cousin) Dixie's house. They had a dairy, and we would get in one of these galvanized cow troughs, much bigger than this tub, but the same idea. I wish I could round up a picture or two of that!

When we got older, her parents built a pool in their backyard, and my parents did as well. We no longer needed the cow troughs, and wouldn't have been caught dead in one as we got older anyhow. But, it was perfect when we were kids!
