Second thing for which I am thankful...
Indoor toilets. Oh, flushing toilet, how I love thee!
Now, yes, I have been without my beloved. It was torture. I've been camping and it is fun, well it can be.
I remember camping with my Dad in the fall/winter during deer season. No toilets. You had to find your tree and be quite sure that no one else could find your tree, or at least see your bum behind the tree.
I look back fondly on those days, but know that it could have been so much better had there only been a flushing toilet involved.
