    Saves water, too.

    I tried to save water once by showering with a friend. But her husband wasn’t too thrilled with the idea.

    Bung is a hippy?

    @Bruno Zeigerts: Bung is no hippie.
    For we know, from the late President Reagan, that
    “a hippie is someone who looks like Tarzan, walks like Jane and smells like Cheetah.”

    Keep a bucket handy for running the water into while waiting for the hot water (use a rooftop solar water heater, of course). Between daily showers and dishwashing, this usually provides enough water to use on my patio flowerpots. Also, having served in the US Navy, I learned to take “military” showers – get wet, turn off the water. Scrub down, shampoo hair, turn on water and rinse. Two minutes max. Lots of ways to conserve and re-use water. My washing machine drains into my garden, and I use a low-sudsing biodegradable laundry detergent. The passion fruit vine planted at the drain outlet loves it.

    Wouldn’t matter if Bung showered anyway since the body-stink could never get past the alcohol-stink.

    I remember those types of showers. Thanks for your service.

    We had intermittent water service when I was stationed on Okinawa and also showered the “military” way. Luckily I was working as a lab tech at Camp Kue Army Hospital and in the hospital we had water 24/7, so we could use the showers in the morgue. Also, the toilets in the hospital could be flushed, which couldn’t be done in the barracks, since there was no water pressure.

    I’ve washed often enough in water not much above freezing out in the woods. It’s not fatal, but it is a jolt.
    When doing surveys of streams in the medford water shed some years back. I kept volunteering to work in the cold water. No one ever caught on why I kept volunteering. When it’s 100-105, it’s amazing how good feeling having your lower half submerged in cold water is.

    “The other end of the bar”?

    Hell’s bells, I’ll move to the other end of GoComics!

    Actually, I think it was “has hair like Jane.” Of course I don’t much care for quoting the Gipper anyway.
