Relief

As you all know, I live in a rural area. Rural, as in there are no Public Rest Areas in a 60 mile radius. This may cause a dilemma for folks travelling with small children this holiday season. Or for those who get a little over- zealous with the morning coffee.

My daily commute encompasses three different counties. As I entered County Number Two the other day, I realized that they were addressing the problem regarding the current lack of facilities. They have placed a porta-potty directly behind the "Welcome to Our County" sign. (Sorry for the blurry photo. I WAS DRIVING. Um, I was sitting at a stop light and didn't have time to focus. Yeah, that's it.)


Nothing says "Stop and sit a spell" like a porta-potty!
I'm considering hanging a wreath on the door. What do you think?

At least the sign did not say "stop and smell the roses"!!

Maybe with the wreath, you could put a few of those airfresheners in there, just to show visitors the county really cares about them!

Thanks for the laugh this morning!!!!

I think a few icicles and a lighted reindeer would add a nice touch, too.

Jenn said...

I think that would be a nice touch! Around here we have to resort to deserted dirt roads or a cornfield!

That is so funny!

belladella said...

That is hilarious! I can't wait to see the picture with the wreath on it! :)

Grandma J said...

Bring CBW with you to string some lights.

Personally, I hate those things. I would go in the bushes before one of those.

What a great observation. You should definitely have some fun with it!

Karen Deborah said...

oh lawd, I'd rather pee in the bushes.

themuseasylum said...

Oh, my side hurts! How fabulous, to place it right behind the Welcome to the County sign!

nikkicrumpet said...

LOL a wreath would look mighty purdy! Ugh...is there anything worse than a porta potty!

Baby Favorite said...

What about Christmas lights, too? Gee, don't just stop at a wreath!

I live in about as rural a place myself. Nothing for about 90 miles in any direction! But I'm surrounded my tumbleweeds -- ACK! (Hellllpppp meeeeeee!)

Suz Broughton said...

This is hysterical!
So glad you stopped. Parked the car. Put on the emergency brake and hazards and from a safe distance from the road, snapped this lovely photo.

Heidi said...

I think the wreath is a GREAT idea along with a can of lysol!!! Dont forget a picture of the wreath!!!!!

(Sometimes!) Serendipitous Girl said...

AWESOME! I always hate not having a restroom by when you need one! I think you should make the wreath out of toilet paper. And agree! YES, photos for sure!

I will pay you big bucks if you do it and take a picture of it to post! OK, I don't have big bucks, but you know... eternal gratitude...that kind of stuff.

I think a wreath on the door would be the funniest thing in the world : ). That would totally make my day!

thevinylvillage said...

omg...that is hilarious. Im assuming there isnt a sign somewhere nearby that announces a rest area coming soon?

Shonda Little said...

As a rural dweller myself, I would rather squat than pee in a port a potty. I'm kind of a holding it pro now. I think the wreath is a great idea.
