  • The Story Of Ma and Pa and The Outhouse!

    Pa is doing his daily constitutional reading in the outhouse one hot summer evening. As he finishes, he stands up, and begins to pull his pants up. As his pants are coming up a dollar and fifty cents falls out of his pocket and lands in the hole from which he has just risen. Pa loudly exclaims, "Dagnammit!", as he hurriedly tries to pull his suspenders up.

    He then tries to turn around but there is not enough room in the outhouse. Pa opens the door, steps out, turns back toward the outhouse, removes a 20-dollar bill from his wallet, and throws it down into the hole.

    Ma’s standing outside waiting to use the facilities. So, she asks him, "Hey Pa, what was goin’ through your pea pickin’ brain that ya gone ahead and done that for?"

    To which Pa replies, "Well Ma, I'm dang sure not goin’ in there for a buck fifty."

    Always love outhouse art, especially with a great story attached. Very nice job and the one suspender is a nice accent.

              I love this little scene and the story! I too, like the one suspender and the apron, very nice touches. I am sure a lot of us can relate to that particular little house out back.

                Burner... Thanks but I assure you that the story is not original nor was the idea for the one suspender. I have a pattern for a similar Hillbilly (Challenged Appalachian if you may) on my computer. I haven't the slightest idea where it came from so in the interest of full disclosure, both the carving and the story are my take on someone elses' creativity.

                  Joe... Yes. I wanted the apron to look like it was made from an old grain sack so I found the image on Goggle that I liked, downloaded it, played with it awhile, and then printed it out using Scribus.

                          I've got a smile from ear to ear Eddie. Nicely done. Best of luck with the doc.

                            Thank you all for your comments and wishes.... I saw the doctor this morning and he had good and bad news. The bad news is that the biopsies taken during my surgery were positive for cancer. The good news is, he believes he got it all and no chemo is necessary at this time. More bad news is that I have to go back on a three month cystoscope exam schedule so that he can keep track of it. To quote Kris Kristofferson, "Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine,Yes just for my sake teach me to take one day at a time"

                              Certainly hope they caught in time Eddy. Have never had to do any of these things so, not really sure what you are saying, but do wish you the best.
