My Daddy and the Well

“As a child, Jerry’s father worked hard to water the banana fields. He used a long bamboo to lift water and often jumped into the well. Years later, a hand operated pump was used for watering. But when people migrated to greener pastures, the village stopped growing red bananas. One day daddy takes little Jerry to his village. On seeing the unused well and rusted hand pump he remembers the good old days and jumps into the well for a good swim!”
