The outhouse chronicles

Cliff improvised an outhouse for me.  I think his work with the cabin is done!  Would you believe that a group of 4 neighbor boys are having the first campout in it?  Luke, our renter's boy; his cousin; next-door neighbor, Quinton; and one of the twins, Travis.  That's OK, it's a good thing to have the good will of young boys.  The more people who can enjoy this camping spot, the better. 

It's been a good country day:  Natalie rode Blue awhile, then Anna (Quinton's sister); then I took him up the road awhile.

Reading your journal makes me think of my backpacking years and rambling thru the countryside. There's been many time that I would have loved to find a place like this on a cold rainy day. It's the simple things in life that are the most important and the things we always take for granted. Thanks for sharing your country life with the electronic world. You have a real gold mine out there!

Well, you are one lucky lady!  Your own rustic retreat complete with outhouse!  Those boys are lucky to have such a wonderful person to share her private place with them.  You'll have to let us know how it went!  Blessings,   tam

interesting entry, I was just talking to one of my cousins, and I'm always interviewing everyone on their grandparents and things they remember, I asked one cousin what she remembered the most about her grandma, my great grandmother that died the year I was born, and they said, she had the most beautiful outhouse they'd ever been in.  I had too have more elaboration, and they said she planted flowers around it, on the inside she had fragrant flowers hanging from a beam, they said she even had painted little designs on the side of it.  I'd love to have seen it.   I wish my famiy had taken pictures of the outhouse.
