My friend is a rather old-fashioned lady, always quite delicate and elegant, especially* in her language.* She and her husband were planning a week's vacation in Arizona; so she wrote to a travel trailer court and asked for a reservation.

She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn't quite know how to ask about the “toilet” facilities.* She just couldn't bring herself to write the word “toilet” in her letter.* After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old-fashioned term “bathroom commode”.* So, she started all over again and referred to the bathroom commode merely as the B.C.* “Does the campground have its own B.C.”? is what she actually wrote.

Well, the court manager, Herman, wasn't old-fashioned at all and when he got the letter, he just couldn't figure out what the woman was talking about.* That B.C. business really had him stumped.

After worrying about it for awhile, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn't imagine what the lady meant either.* So, he finally came to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the location of the Baptist Church.* He sat down and wrote the following reply:
Dear Madam: *

I regret the delay in answering your letter, but now take pleasure of informing you that a B.C. is located 9 miles north of the campground and is capable of seating 250 people at one time.* I admit, it is quite a distance away if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches along and make a day of it.* They usually arrive early and stay late. *

The last time my wife and I went was 6 years ago and it was so crowded we had to stand up the whole time we were there.* It may interest you to know that right now there is a supper planned to raise money to buy more seats.* They are going to hold it in the basement of the B.C.* I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, but it is surely no lack of desire on my part.* As we grow older, it seems to be more of an effort, particularly in cold weather. *

If you decide to come down to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks. *

Remember, this is a friendly community. *

Sincerely, *

Hmmm, Herman didn't say it ... but I'll bet ushers will be passing a basket for her contribution.
