One for the Chamber of Commerce

Over the weekend, the Bristol did a front page story on the continued use of outhouses in Southwest Virginia.

I remember the outhouses that were on the farms where my dad grew up and where my mom grew up. The latter was referred to as Grandpa Conrad's "office."

Also, I recall there was one at the old band director's cabin, wherever that was, complete with instructions in the form of a bit of verse.
