He said "you’ll have to excuse me right now 'cause I've got to go out and
cut some stovewood, but you can carry on and have a look around.
So I went on down the hallway and I found me a room at the back of the
house, kinda shelved away, like maybe they didn't want me to find it or
something, but I found it!
Well in this room was the darnedest great big ol' horse watering trough
you ever did see, all enamelled over, with a pipe at one end leading up to
this thing on the wall, made of that white dish stuff, with a handle on top
and you could turn this handle and get water out!
Thing was no good though; had a hole in the bottom and all the water kept
tricklin' away but I plugged it up with a corn cob and it worked just fine.
But the thing I really come here to tell you about this evening, folks,
was over there in the corner; 'bout a chair's height offa the floor,
and that was the darnedest thing you ever did see for washing your feet!
And you could jerk a lever and get clean water for the other foot too!
And sitting on top there were these two lids.
I say two lids but I lifted the top one and the bottom one was plum wore out,
had a hole right through the middle of it!
Well I took me them lids home and I used the top one for a bread board,
and I framed my picture in the bottom one!
A dollar to dig my grave.
