Small Town Humor

Postby dlr110 » Thu Aug 08, 2019 8:49 pm

This one you wouldn’t believe so I’ve included pictures.

One day my wife Cheryl and I were driving down some Texas backroads looking for antique stores and some good ole country cooking for lunch. We were headed west on State Hwy 82 and stopped in the small town of St. Jo, Texas, at last count 977 citizens. There was an antique store, “Trail Town Treasures,” we were going to go into, but first we wanted lunch.

Just on the east side of the town square was, “The Lazy Heart Grill” and the “Stonewall Saloon.” Well my wife grab my arm and into the grill we went. It was a very nice setting and the chicken fried steak was outstanding, but here is the reason for the story. After we finished our meal Cheryl said she was going to the restroom before we left. She got up from the table and a couple of minutes later she came rushing back to get her camera and without a word rushed back into the restroom. Now just use your own imagination as to what I was thinking!

When she returned of course I asked her what in the world was she doing taking pictures in the restroom! She said wait till we get outside, so I paid our bill and when we got outside she showed me what you now see in the bottom photo. The only redneck statement I could think of at the time was “were you the pilot or co-pilot.” I don’t know about ladies, but I’m almost certain there is NO WAY if that was the men’s restroom.

Most of us did not grow up to know a 2-3 holer out house. or Boy Scout summer camp. At the opening of the Russian Olympics the ladies on NBC morning news was laughing at a photo of a ladies room side by side. no partition. Out houses are still legal here.

Cold in the winter time, stinks to high heaven in the summer time plus the critters. I was 16 years old the last time we had a path. Thank God for indoor plumbing.

Ah, the old outhouse. My grandparents on both sides had them. About 50 yards from the house. Which was 50 yards too far in winter and 50 yards too close in summer! :lol: First thing you did upon entering was take the stick (provided for that express purpose) and pass it around under the rim of the hole to knock off any spiders before you sat down. ::woot::

It just hit me, is the one in the back the handicap stall?
I see the hand rails are back there.

yes the handicapped rails are required by federal law. No baby changing table? also required for men's and women's rooms. I'd rather pass off to grandma.
bidet,thank you Crocodile Dundee. When I worked building ships the owners suite head had a bidet. pronounce biday, a carpenter asked me how to spell it for his time record slip. It was said and buyer's wife asked her husband what that was for? It's a *** "fill in your own" washer. more common in some country's than toilet paper.

Actually, the back one looks smaller. Maybe it’s a kids size?
