There was a nice lady, a minister's widow,who was a little old
fashioned lady. She was planning a week's vacation in California
at Skylake Yosemite campground (Bass Lake, to the uninitiated),
but she wanted to make sure of the accommodation first.

Uppermost in her mind were the bathroom facilities, but she couldn't
bring herself to write 'toilet' in a letter. After considerable deliberation,
she settled on 'bathroom commode', but when she wrote that down,
it still sounded too forward. So after the first page of her letter, she
referred to the bathroom commode as 'BC'.

"Does the cabin where I will be staying have its own 'BC'? If not, where
is the 'BC' located?" is what she actually wrote.

The campground owner took the first page of the letter and the lady's
check and gave it to his secretary. He put the remainder of the letter
on the desk of the senior member of his staff without noticing that the
staffer would have no way of knowing what 'BC' meant. Then the owner
went off to town to run some errands.

The staff member came in after lunch, found the letter, and was baffled
by the euphemism, so he showed the letter around to several counselors,
but they couldn't decipher it either. The staff member's wife who knew that
the lady was the widow of a famous Baptist preacher, was sure that it must
be a question about the local Baptist Church. "Of course," the first staffer
exclaimed, "BC stands for 'Baptist Church'." And he sat down and wrote:

Dear Madame,
I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take the
pleasure in informing you that the BC is located nine miles north of the
campground and is capable of seating 250 people at one time. I admit it is
quite a distance away if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt
you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches
along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late.

The last time my wife and I went was six years ago, and it was so crowded we
had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that
right now there is a supper planned to raise money to buy more seats. They
are going to hold it in the basement of the BC.

I would like to say that it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly,
but it is surely no lack of desire on my part. As we grow older, it seems to be more
of an effort,particularly in cold weather.

If you decide to come down to our campground. perhaps I could go with you the
first time, sit with you, and introduce you to all the folks.

Remember, this is a friendly community.
