  • The outhouse

    My wife and I have been married over 38 years, we built a house in 1986 and the best feature, in my mind, is the five toilets. The house is not that big, I just have a “thing” about bathrooms. When I was a child we lived in a house that had three bedrooms and a “path.” A decent distance from the back door and “downwind” was a two-holer outhouse equipped with a library and wasp spray. Thinking about it now, I don’t know why in the South, in the summer, anyone would want to “share” their bathroom experience; I think I can wait.

  • I hate change!

    Last year we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.
