Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

This reminds me of my husband's stories of filling soldiers' canteens with fresh water in the 1940's on Cape Cod. Soldiers would be marching and the young people would grab a couple canteens, run to fill them and then run back to hand them back.

@Judy aka L@dybug: It's such a good work of art that you could construct many stories from it Judy.
