well

[REVIEW] our house is relatively dry well early, in the late sixties all the basic old village wells have dried up, lost its role, people have gradually forgotten those old wells, although they also there, but who would not go ignored it, as if these old wells were drained out of her, they are still the same as dry bottle forgotten in every corner of the village, past history and become a memory of childhood. Home yard has an old well, already withered, about forty years ago it has withered away.The reason was due to withered village while playing a mouthful Eighty percent of domestic water supply of the village people, the beginning of the mouth of the old water wells there are so few, over a period of time is completely no water.The village domestic water supply wells later because they can not meet people in the village with water, and conducted a second deep drilling, deep drilling after a lot of people in the village of old wells are gradually dried up, our family seemed old wells dry earlier Some, because our family is not the old well like many people of old wells so deep.Old well in the yard after dry completely useless, and things of no use to seal it.Since then it is covered with old wells with a large stone, or as far covered.When the old well is truly vibrant those years of my childhood, to my eight-year-old on the verge of death.Large yard of our house can be said that a large vegetable garden.It is four years old when my grandfather was still alive, he planted a lot of spinach, of course, grow vegetables need water for irrigation to rely on these old mouth of the well.Old well in the southeast corner of the yard, the spring and the ground one meter higher than the appearance, of course, is to have the well of the winch, but also has a water tank dustpan, dustpan and water tank are stones; playing up with a potter’s wheel well water poured into water dustpan, dustpan water from flowing into the sink, the sink has a hole, out of the hole where the water can flow out and flow into the garden.Six or seven when I had more skilled shake gin and put the winch, windlass is to shake down (into the well) to put a bucket, put a hand winch need to control the rate of decline in contact gin gin, or hit the bucket back hit the wall of the drain, down to the winch, and to the bucket downhole, to shy operated by hand, so that the bucket can be filled with water.Bucket full of feeling, but then that is shaking the winch, is to put up a bucket, of course, hand winch to winch the.Shake gin more strenuous, not put gin, is put down is empty barrels; there shake up the weight, but also shake up.Fortunately, I was a kid relatively strong body, strong and also, what do these not live.In fact, like gin wheel, is the need for frequent lubrication, it would need oil, lack of oil, like the potter’s wheel as Laoniupoche not easy to rotate, shake it up is a lot of strength.Use the winch is to know how to use the method, in particular, put gin pay attention to safety, to stand a good position, otherwise the fast rotating pulley, winch easy to name the person’s head, which is very dangerous.Shake gin must bang, not elastic, or just put an eagle, then a heavy bucket of water, windlass will run down very quickly, which is very dangerous.Actually, the most interesting is not that shake gin gin release, nor is my deepest impression of old wells memories, and remember most is when I was seven, a lot of rain that year, the old water wells are full, straight spillover many people in the village have come here to draw water, and this is helping our family, or flood occurs.But remember really crowded, busy, bustling!I was holding a small jug to take water from the well to play, I feel very interesting, water is very clear, sweet, get up to drink.Tianjin Baoding year there seems to have made a flood, an ocean of it!Groundwater levels drop, reducing the village’s wells had dried up all the rain, our house is relatively dry well early, in the late sixties all the basic old village wells have dried up, lost its role, it also gradually forget those old wells, although they are still there, but who would not go ignored it, as if these old wells were drained out of her, they are still the same as dry bottle forgotten in the village every corner, past history and become a memory of childhood.[Editor: easy to get along]
