    A very proper lady began planning a week's camping vacation for her and
    her Baptist Church group. She wrote to a campground for reservations.
    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. So, she decided on the old-fashioned term "Bathroom Commode."
    Once written down she still was not comfortable. Finally she decided on
    the abbreviation "B.C." and wrote, "does your campground have its own
    "B.C.?" When the campground owner received the letter, he couldn't
    figure out what she 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 since there was a letterhead on the paper which referred
    to a Baptist Church. So he sent this reply.

    Dear Madam:
    The B.C. is located nine miles from the camp ground 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 at one time, 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. 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 ones have holes in them. Unfortunately my wife is ill and has not
    been able to attend regularly. It's been a good 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.
