Description Joe Mons lived just across the street from us. You know, he was the first one tnat made me aware that water cost money-silly, imagine water costing money. Since then, I know that you can pay any price and never find a clear, crisp, cold drink that is as good as one from a fountain at Ephraim, IJhoa, back to the wards - then there was the South Ward.
