Hot water in the house was another luxury we did not partake of in my early days. A double stainless steel sink in the kitchen only ran cold water. The pipes often froze in the winter due to lack of insulation. Well, no--anyway daddy would cuss and mama would follow him outside with a light bulb on an extension cord to help thaw the pipes so that precious water ran freely once more. Mama recalls one year in particular when the old, rusty pipe in the pump house "froze up". The pump house looks like a little out building with a tin roof.

To gain access to the pipes you had to slide that tin roof off and climb up and over. Grandma told mama to take hot ashes from the wood stove and put them in a bucket. She then told her to hold the bucket of hot ashes under the frozen pipe. Not such a great idea after all, those hot ashes touched the frozen pipe and that pipe "sprung a large leak! Daddy was working at the sawmill and grandma was two miles away; all the way down at the "big house"! Mama just squatted there with her thumb over the pipe pondering what she should do.
Fortunately she heard a truck "pulling in. The truck was delivering farm material from Southern States. What a sight that must have been. He happened to have some electrical tape in his truck. Mama was ecstatic to see somebody.
She took her finger off the busted pipe and got out of the pump house as quickly as she could. The Southern States man then jumped in and taped that hole right up! The Southern States man saves the day!
