|Register HERE if you use the Outhouse
Scanned by J. Loose
|For Christmas this year, my sister again came up with a couple of choice items to try and out-do herself over previous years. This year, one of the items was a guest register to put in the Outhouse.|
|As you can see by the cover, it has a hole to put a chain through. You can then hang it from a nail right next to one of the holes. It has a spot to print your name, address, date and remarks. Inside the front cover are a couple of paragraphs describing "The History of the JOHN" by Orville Fenderlob. It contains a cute description as well as a theory of the JOHN and why the author believes it is the most important invention of all time.|
|As I read the reasoning behind the comment, I began to imagine the humble beginnings of how Outhouses came to be. I couldn't help agreeing with Orville. Live would be a pit without the John. It all began a LONG time ago; Seems as though two guys were contemplating life one day. This was before there were any kind of toilets. As they were talking about the mess and stink everywhere, one said to the other that the area they lived in was turning into a pit. They both looked at each other and the light bulbs lit up. From that day forward, the pit toilet was created and the Outhouse had found its beginning. Tell them you heard it from the Curator of the Outhouses of America tour!|
|What else can you see in the images shown? Many times a photo is worth a thousand words and I've only elaborated with a few so here is your chance to add some "color commentary" to my collection. If your addition is worthy, you will find the quote added on the Comments to the Curator page. You can use Email to respond.|
