This story is about a rather old fashioned lady, who was planning a couple of weeks’ vacation in Florida. She also was quite delicate and elegant with her language. She wrote a letter to a particular campground and asked for reservations. She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped but didn’t know quite how to ask about the “toilet” facilities. She just couldn’t bring herself to write the word “toilet” in her letter. After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old fashioned term “Bathroom Commode,” but when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward so she rewrote the entire letter and referred to the “Bathroom Commode” simply as the B.C.” Does the campground have its own “B.C.?” is what she actually wrote. The campground owner wasn’t old fashioned at all, and when he got the letter, he couldn’t figure out what the lady was talking about. The word “B.C.” really stumped him. After worrying about it for several days, he showed the letter to other campers, but they couldn’t figure out what the lady meant either. The campground owner finally came to the conclusion the lady must be asking about the location of the local Baptist Church. So he sat down and wrote the following reply: Dear Madam: I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take pleasure in informing you that the “B.C.” is located nine miles north of the campsite 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 plan to hold the supper in the middle of the B.C., so everyone can watch and talk about this great event. I would like to say it pains me very much, not to be able to go more regularly, but it is not for lack of desire on my part. As we grow older, it seems to be more and more of an effort, particularly in cold weather. If you decide to come down to the campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go … sit with you … and introduce you to all the other folks. This is really a very friendly community.

On Monday, August 23, the Presbyterian Women will be providing a meal for the Veterans in Lexington. Once again, due to COVID restrictions we won’t be able to enter the facility. We will be sending money for pizza, individually packaged desserts and drinks, which will be covered by the Presbyterian Women’s budget. The employees at the hospital will be coordinating this and serving it.
We continue to keep our Veterans in our hearts, in our thoughts, and in our prayers. We are grateful that we can still honor them in this way. Hopefully, we can return to normal next year!

I wanted to tell you that I have found something very interesting to tell you about…namely, that there is a small fiction section with some interesting things that make a visit to peruse worthwhile! Try it out now that we are back in the building and let me know if you find something really interesting. I will read almost anything (well, at least the first 50-100 pages but if after that I am not overly pleased I stop and go to something else). Next month I will try to do better…I have a very different and challenging book to share information about and to share as soon as I am sure there is a copy of the book on the shelves. Until then, keep reading and enjoy.
