Definitely SHOULD!

When I was a little girl about the age you are in the picture and we would go to my grandma's house, I would take a bath in one of those tubs Thumbs up Thumbs up

I still have two of them. My girls, and granbabies all played in them as a mini swimming pool when they were babies Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

Well water here too! I feel sorry for folks in the city. They can run it forever and it never gets cold. Sad

Hah! My neighbor has an old clawfoot tub in his back yard, just for that purpose.

I've gone over there several times to find him sitting in it, passed out/sound asleep, relaxed as far as someone could get.

I should find one, too. No way I'll fit in the little tub anymore!
