Waukesha County Real Estate and Lake Country Real Estate: Okay Tom Braatz, what in the heck is a bubbler?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

It wasn't too long ago I was walking down a street in Waukesha County Real estate and Lake Country Real estate and my friend that was with me said that they were thirsty. My reply "Why don't you go stick your snout over the bubbler over there and get a cold drink?" Their reply "Okay Tom Braatz, what in the heck is a bubbler?" I went on to expalin that in many Waukesha County cities, towns, and villages that water fountains were conveniently placed for people to get a cold drink of water anytime of day they wanted. These fountains are referred to as bubblers. Please see the definitions below; I personally like the bratwurstpages.com

Lots of those bubblers in cities; beats taking a hit off the well pump in county parks

Tom, I'm trying to think if we have any local terminology here in Redding. Nothing comes to mind. I rather like it....history is wonderful and it's wonderful that you are sharing it with us. Rich content, Tom!

Well a bubbler sounds awfully refreshing right now with the temperature at 100 degrees and the humidity a little "up there"

Tom--That must be a Wisconsin thing...never heard in referred to as a bubbler in MN but we always had drinking fountains at the parks. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer with Lars and your family!

We still have a few of these around the Portland area. They are really cool and I'm actually impressed they have lasted all these years even in some harsh winter storms.
