If you are from Leguan you know that we used to drink water from the pond, we had taps to catch rain water and many people had goblets in their houses to keep the water cool and available. Oftyen times tadpoles could be seen jumping out the goblet – don’t know where they came from but my mom used to say they keep the water cool and I believed that. Then we got artesian well and living in phoenix I used to walk to Louisiana not far from school to fetch buckets of water. We used to make this into a social event, walking out with your girlfriends and sometimes your boyfriend would meet you there and while you fetching the water on yuh head he pushing his bike or riding slowly besides you. It was soc much fun growing up in Leguan. I remember my childhood as fondly.
Today there is all kinds of talk about bad water, drinking purified water and this and that is bad for you. Sometimes the little germs we might have gotten is what is keeping us alive and healthy today. I don’t believe all the crap these western people are talking about. And remember growing up we used to see the doctor only when we are sick. There was nothing like yearly checkup – not in my house. Do you have memories? Please share
