That Funny Little Room
Desert Center California (CA), Real Photo

Description:
A farmer sold out and moved his family back to the city, and in writing "back home" they said: "We got a big house that's got six rooms. One room we don't do nothin' but cook in. It's got a big stove. One room we don't do nothin' but eat in. It's got a table and chairs. One room's got chairs and we don't do nothin' but sit and talk in it. Two rooms we just sleep in. They got beds. Then there's the funniest little room. It's got a place to take a bath either standin' up or sittin' down. It's got a white bowl in the corner that we don't do nothin' but wash our hands in. Then in another corner is a bowl to wash our feet in. It took us three weeks to figure out what it was for. When we first come it had two lids on it but we took 'em off. One we used for a bread board. The other lid made a fine frame for grandpa's picture.
