I gave this card to my mom one year! She has this thing about outhouses! When she first started teaching in Southern Illinois in a one room school house, she was a boarder at a local farmhouse which had only an outhouse. As a big city girl from Chicago, she was appalled! When she went home to Chicago at Christmas time, she told the superintendent that she wasn't coming back unless he found her a place to stay that had indoor plumbing. They checked around and found two old maids who would take her on as a boarder - and they had indoor plumbing. So she returned to her teaching position down there. The two old maids were my dad's aunts and that was how my parents met! Anyway, at 102 years old now - she loves the humor in this cartoon!
