After watching the dog slip and slide all over the yard to take care of her business, I am sure thankful that I don’t have to bundle up and slide to the unheated outhouse to take care of business. I know there used to exist thunder mugs, but somebody had to empty and clean them, and I’m guessing it was the mom. As the resident mom, I do NOT want that job. Also, for the last couple of years, every time I have fallen on the ice (there have been a few), I ended up losing enough bladder control to add insult to injury. So, yes, I am thankful for indoor plumbing today.
