Does Your Campground Have a BC?

Monday, January 18, 2010

Something VERY funny.  


The story is told of a lady who was rather old-fashioned, 
always quite delicate and elegant,
 especially in her language. 

She and her husband were planning a week's vacation in Florida, 
so she wrote to a particular campground asking 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. 
But when she wrote that down, she still thought she 
was being too forward. 
So she started all over again and rewrote the entire letter 
referring to the bathroom commode merely as the BC. 

"Does the campground have it's own BC?" 
is what she actually wrote.


Well, the campground owner 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 BC business really stumped him.

After worrying about it for awhile, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn't imagine what the lady meant either. 

So the campground owner, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote the following reply:

Dear Madam:
 
I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take pleasure in informing you that a BC is located nine 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. 

It is such a beautiful facility and the acoustics are marvelous. 
Even the normal delivery sounds can be heard.

The last time my wife and I went was six 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 a supper is 
planned to raise money to buy more seats. 

I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, 
but it surely is no lack of desire on my part. 
As we grow old, it seems to be more of an effort, 
particularly in cold weather.

If you do 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,
Campground Owner

  12. Lois, I REALLY needed that today!
    I think God inspired you to post it just for me!!!
    Actually I had first heard that tale 15 years ago...and in that version it was a WC (water closet)
    the term that Brits use.
    But the punch line was just as FUN as the first time I read it!
    Blessings sweet Friend, hope you all are adapting to the Colonel's temporary absence. "LORD Keep him safe!"

  13. Hey Sunshine,
    I have missed you and have been trying all day to find your blog address so I could come see if you are okay!! So glad to hear from you!!
    That post is hysterical! so funny!
    That is too funny that you used to jump in the sheets too. Don't think my Mom appreciated it too much either, but we did it anyway too!! I showed my kids how to do it when they were little! lol
    They probably thought their Mommy was one slice short of a full loaf,
    if you know what I mean!! lol
    So glad you found the cheese! It is really good stuff! Turned me into a string cheese lover for the first time in my life.
    Thanks so much for your sweet comments about my blog, it makes me so happy that it brightens your day.
    So how are you and the kids doing?
    and how is hubby? Also how is the driving with Olivia?

  17. Thanks Lois for the knee slapping laugh, I really need that. I read some of your other blogs before this one and I know how you feel, trying to get back to your old self. Hang in there girl, I know things get hard at times but with the good Lord and a each others prayers I have faith that we will make it through all this and hopefully come out a little stronger. I want you to know I pray for you and your family every night, and to tell you the truth it really helps me to know that I am not alone in all this...Thanks for the smile!
