How many of our readers remember the days before indoor plumbing? When I was a child my grandparents' house (where I now live) did not have a bathroom. There was a pitcher & bowl set in every bedroom. There were also chamber pots in the bedrooms, and a privy outdoors.
I have terrific memories of spending summers on Ocracoke more than a half century ago, but I wonder how many of us really want to return to "the good old days."
Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is about islanders who worked on the
water, and lost their lives at sea. You can read the Newsletter here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news012116.htm.
