I just bet you expect me to tell you about the story of my husbands youthful antic of dumping over porta potties don't ya. Actually he confessed as a teen he and his buddies from school would go out at night and shift the outhouses by moving them 2 to 3 feet back. He said it was very dark and no one could see especially when they had to make a late night run to the outhouse, and well you know what the outcome was, they fell right in all that mess. Oh I am sure he was an honest young man but you know he didn't own up to that one.
I asked him who were a few of their victims, he chuckled and said " The Principal". He said he even done that at his own house and his Dad said if he ever found out who done that, well it would sure be a tragedy.
The porta potty issue is really a question I have about the seats of today. I want to know who in the world invented the plastic bolts and wing nuts that hold the toilet seat on. Why they must have been smoking that wacky stuff to think of that.
You know all of us who have updated our toilet needs to know is that when we had galvanized or brass nuts and bolts for the seats we NEVER experience the slide method. Oh yeah, I hear you laughing now and saying "Oh I can relate to that."
For those of you who remember the Jackie Gleason show he would always say something like "one of these days Alice ... Slam bang To The Moon Alice." Anyway it was like that, you just slip slided away ever since they came out with those plastic hardware as they call it. Well it's not been too hardy, they need to leave the things that aren't broken alone and fix only those things that are.
I would rather attempt to replace a rusted or dysfunctional bolt than my tail bone among other things. Puts a whole new idea to telling the kids the toilet monster will get you. This is one time I would say yes to heavy metal.
OK so no one I know writes about toilet seats. But lets face it (no pun intended). It is an item that has been around for a very long time, in fact 99% of all households own at least one of these pieces of furniture. That's right, it is actually considered furniture and it is used an awful lot. I was going to explain how much but you better go to the web site, yeah they have several on toilets.
Bet you didn't know that and there is a lot of really kewl information on toilets, just because it is a strange subject or a unique one. You know O'Keefe the artist, well she is even in on it, kewl huh! Now that is what I call art. I went to one web site - Toiletology 101 - I found this knowledgeable excerpt "What was the first television program that depicted a toilet? Believe it or not, TV's first toilet was seen on the pilot episode of Leave it to Beaver in the early 1960s. In the episode, Wally and the Beave bring home a baby alligator and hide it in the toilet tank. Tight camera angles were used so that only the tank could be seen on the show. The "seat" portion of the toilet was never shown because people in the early 60s did not go to the bathroom." So if you are interested in maintaining proper care or the results of flushes and double flushes, go directly to your search engine and type in "How many flushes does it take to get to the center of the earth."

Hey, hey, hay. Wow did I ever get a new form of saying that. We were reseeding our yard. So rather than throw the straw on top of the seed, which was a lot of work, my beloved husband rented a straw blower. Yippee I thought as I knew we would save time especially since it was going to rain the next day. My husband (Lynn) said I could hold the shooting hose cause I wouldn't have to worry about getting the straw all
