The Way Back Machine
The time: Summer, 1982
The place: Cumberland Drive, Clarksville, Tennessee
My mom and stepdad were living in the beautiful brick home on Cumberland Drive and it was horribly hot and humid. There were no public pools available to us and the old creek out in the country was 20 miles away.
What did we do? My mom filled up a wash bucket and we plopped my son inside. He was happy, contained in his own little swimming pool.
