No Mimi, no rain... but I still didn't mow the lawn Rain is coming tonight, I figure when it drys up the end of next week it will really need it then.

Donna, you just need a pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. We don't have a lawn to speak of any more. They tear it out in chunks like golf divots while running around the yard, then graze on whatever is left over. The wider the blade the better. Now I understand why one of our breeders put astroturf in their back yard.

Hey Lynn, this crap is serious stuff

Actually, I think the bumper dumper might work well for those that boondock. There's even a pooper tent to put over it. I just hope no one decides to drive off to sightsee with that thing attached. THAT might raise some eyebrows.

Now that we live full time in a 38ft fifth wheel we had to go with a simple foot-riser solution and have a 9" high (same height as the "squatty potty" stool) E-Z Foldz stool you can easily find in most stores.



I'm not kidding when i say that any _issues_ such as hemorrhoids and similar vanished in less than three months once we switched _positions_.

Funny what topics can come up on an RV forum!

I did make a platform for our wet bath and it made quite a difference.

Since others have added their own scoop on the poop...

On elderly...
IMO, the switch to the _throne_ seating in the lavatory has wrecked havok on our ability to remain in-control into our later years. Case in point...my 93 year old dad can still ball room dance and is in amazing shape...but he dare not leave the house without wearing adult diapers! And since he lives on the other side of the US and there are more fun topics to bring up on our weekly phone call...

But i'm a firm believer the squat position assists the body naturally to keep all the plumbing and the muscle groups working as designed. So for me and my house...

Good morning Thom.

You're correct, position keeps everything working properly as we age.

We see lots of hi-rise thrones in elderly housing. The problem, is as we age, we lose muscle mass and a lot of that is thigh muscle. The elderly can't pull themselves up when seated at a low level. Rising legs/feet solves one problem, but doesn't solve the other....

I tried this in Times Square once when I lived in the Village. Spent the night in jail.

Next will be the Trot and Squat

Maybe that's why my husband doesn't think it is real.

It is possible to squat while engaging in a number of activities besides that detailed here as most GIs with service in the Pacific and eastern Asia can attest (eating lunch, doing laundry). I believe assuming and maintaining the position is easier for people who are short-limbed and light-weight. When I was in VietNam, I found it very east to cantilever my butt behind my heels. Not so 44 yrs. and nearly 50lbs later. Can you imagine William Howard Taft squatting? Right after eating well comes the need for stools, benches, tables and chairs.
