An Outhouse!!!!!!

Peter has decided that he wants an outhouse....

(actually, I mentioned the idea to him last year...
saying how nice it would be to have on the property of the shop...
really quaint & cute and I could fix it up with old climbing roses
and hang old enamel pots on the outside and and and...
he disagreed, saying it would be hard to maintain,
needed a special permit, blah blah blah)
So I let the discussion go.
I came home this past Sunday and discovered that he had re-plumbed the septic lines
at the side of the shop, put in a water hydrant and built a base for our new 'Loo'...
(which will be an actual flush toilet/sink electrified little bathroom)

I reminded him about my idea last summer,
and about all the fuss he made about putting one in...
(he conveniently couldn't remember our conversation...and insisted HE thought of this)

isn't it wonderful when our Men-folk think of things all by themselves?
(I know you can relate...)


Bright Blessings to you!
