Yesterdays...

When the kids were young, we used to pack up lawn chairs, cooler, and whatever else we wanted and go through the gate shown HERE, commonly called Rock Run. I hope that link works...
Anyway, the road led back to this area...I am sure I have some other pictures of it somewhere but I just can't find them right now. Big cliffs were there on either side, and a small creek ran through the valley. We would take hot dogs, smoked sausages, or whatever we had to roast over the fire. I will tell you right here and now there is nothing better than a piece of ham speared on a stick and held over an open fire. It is simply delicious. Add chips and a coke and you have a meal fit for a king in my opinion.

The kids would play in the creek, or swing on a big rope swing that used to be there. My husband usually took some kind of firearm to target shoot a little. I took books to read and hand sewing. But sometimes I just hunted ginseng, if it was late enough in the fall. We now have a season on it...when I was a kid you could hunt it all summer long.

And this old outhouse was there....what other convenience could you ask for. To see what I done with in in photoshop, go to Paintbox Pictures. There is also a picture of ginseng that I did.

I love the old outhouse! I guess I can say that now that I don't ever have to use one - LOL!
In my hometown paper a lady's husband brought one home to her and she put it in her yard and decorated it - it was really cute. I saw and wanted one and now seeing yours. I have plenty of room - what do you think - for looks only though!

That sounds wonderful! I haven't set around a campfire for years and now I want to!

Love to see the way different people decorate their out houses. Thanks for sharing.

I'm so thankful for our modern day bathrooms! I used to enjoy camping when my kids were little but now I'm happy to get into my nice clean bed at home.
