An old water pump. This was how we got water from the farm up on the "Adams farm" when we were enjoying time at the lake with the Cunningham Clan. There was no running water on either site but it didn't feel like "roughing it." I miss the experiences at the cabins with family. Everything felt normal and sane while we were there.
Mercurochrome... If you read the words above and cringed then you know exactly what I'm talking about! It came in a little bottle with a cap that served as a dropper or just had a stick on it. It was this reddish orange color that stained everything it touched including your skin for days. And it was what my mom used on every cut or scrape throughout my childhood. Just the mention of it brought tears to my eyes.
