A woman who was rather old-fashioned, delicate, and elegant
- especially in her language - was planning a week's vacation
in Florida so she wrote to a particular campground 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." But when
she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too
forward. So, she started all over again, rewrote the letter
and referred to the bathroom commode merely as the B.C.
"Does the campground have it's own B.C.?" 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 B.C. business really
stumped him.

After worrying about it for a while, 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 location of the local Baptist Church, sat down
and wrote the following reply:

"Dear Madam: Regret very much in the delay in answering
you letter. I now take the pleasure in informing you that
a B.C. 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 usually take their lunches along
and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay

"The last time my wife and I went was six years ago and
it was so crowded that we had to stand up the whole time
we were there. It may interest you to know that right
now, there is a supper being planned to raise money to
buy more seats. They're 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 sure 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 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."
