A rather old-fashioned lady, quite delicate and elegant in her use of language, wrote to a campground inquiring about it's facilities. Among other things, she wanted to know about the toilets. But she just couldn't bring herself to write THAT word, so she thought Bathroom Commode would be more appropriate. But even that looked so harsh to her that she decided BC was a more genteel choice, and therefore she wrote "does the campground have it's own BC"?

Not understanding what the letter was asking about, the campground owner asked several campers what they thought she was asking about, and the consus was that she must be looking for a Baptist Church. He replied to her inquiry as follows:

Dear Madame, I'm pleased to inform you that a BC is located just 13 miles north of our campground and it is capable of seating 250 people. I'll admit this may seem a bit far if you are in the habit of going regularly, but many people take their lunches along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late. The last time I went was six years ago, and it was so crowded I had to stand up the whole time. You may be interested to know there is a fund raiser going on to raise money to buy more seats, it is being held in the basement of the BC.

I would like to explain that it pains me very much not being able to go more regularly, but it is not from a lack of desire on my part. As I grow older, it seems to be more of an effort for me, especially in cold weather. If you decide to come to our campground, perhaps I could take you there the first time and sit with you until you feel comfortable with the other folks there.

Remember, this is a friendly community campground!
