My Grandfather Used to Say

I take a bath every Saturday whether I need it or not!

That was my grandfather and two of his sisters, taken in the early 1900s. His siblings used to say that they had an even dozen. They didn’t have a room for each child but had one large bed; six slept at the top of the bed and six slept from the bottom of the bed and he said often “it was more than once that I woke up with a toe in my mouth”.
