I'll bet she is! It's nice to see spouses appreciating one another like this.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

When I used to go camping in the Adirondacks , there were nothing but outhouses, in various states of repair. You bring a small bag of lime and your own TP.
There is nothing to conjure up memories of all those Disney movies with "eyes in the woods" in the night like a trip to the outhouse when you just can't wait til dawn.
And then a twig snaps and your dog starts growling...really low guttural growling.

My faulty memory says we always had TP in the outhouse. I was 5-6 when we got indoor plumbing.
