When a very proper retired lady and her husband began planning a week's camping vacation, she wrote to a campground for reservations and information. She wanted to make sure that the campground was fully equipped and modern, but couldn't bring herself to write the word "toilet" in her letter. She decided on the old-fashioned term "Bathroom Commode." Once written down, she still wasn't comfortable. Finally she decided on the abbreviation "B.C.", and wrote "does your campground have its own "B.C.?" When the campground owner got the letter, he couldn't figure out what the woman meant by "B.C." He showed it to several of the campers, one of whom suggested the lady was obviously referring to a Baptist Church. So he sent the lady this reply:
The B.C. is located nine miles from the campground in a beautiful grove of trees. I admit it is quite a distance if you are in the habit of going regularly! No doubt you will be pleased to know that it will seat 350 people and it is open on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday of each week. Some folks like to take their lunch and make a day of it, especially on Thursday when there is organ accompaniment. The acoustics are very good, so everyone can hear even the quietest passages. It may interest you to know that my daughter met her husband there. We are also having a fund raiser to purchase new seats, as the old seats have holes in them. Unfortunately my wife is ill and has not been able to attend regularly It's been six months since she last went. It pains her very much not to be able to go more often. As we grow older, it seems to be more of an effort, especially in cold weather. Perhaps I could accompany you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks who will be there. I look forward to your visit! We offer a very friendly campground.
