It seems this old fashioned, delicate and elegant lady and her husband were planning a week's vacation in Florida, so she wrote a particular campground and asked for reservations.

She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn't know quite how to word "TOILET," in her letter to the manager.

After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old fashion term "Bathroom Commode." But when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward, so she started all over again. She re-wrote the entire letter and refered to the bathroom commode merely as "BC."

Does the campground have its own BC? Is what she actually wrote. Well the campground manager wasn't old fashion at all and when he got the letter, he just couldn't figure out what the woman was talking about, the BC business really stumped him.

After worrying about it for a while, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn't figure out what the woman meant either. So the campground manager, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the location of a 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 the pleasure of informing you that the BC 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 lunch along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late.

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 planned to raise money to buy more seats. That is going to be held in the basement of the BC. 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 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 folks.

Remember, this is a friendly community.
