A Little Lesson & A Pretty Sunset

I was out last night and saw this spectacular sunset so just had to take a photo. This was only part of it as my camera cut out most....but this was the biggest and best part. It was humid, and you can see why as the sky was letting water loose but it wasn't hitting the ground for the most part...too bad as even after all that Spring rain we could use some more. Today was the hottest day of the summer so far.



And now for your history lesson for the day!

Interesting History

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & sold to the tannery, if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor."

But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot......they "didn't have a pot to piss in" & were the lowest of the low.

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

  1. How about . . .they didn't have a pot or a window to throw it out of?
