I can hear the news story now:
"A forty eight year old man was pulled out of the Eno River by local authorities after trying to save his children who fell in while playing. The children easily swam to the bank and saved themselves and were in no real danger, unlike the dad who gave in to exhaustion and had to be rescued by the local fire department."
Officials on site commented that maybe the kids should have jumped back in to save their dad. The Fire Chief asked the question, "In his shape, what was he thinking?"
That would be my luck.

If nature is persistent enough, they will use an outhouse, but it is under duress and constant protest. This is usually when I call them a bunch of wimps and retell the stories of how I walked over a mile to the bus stop through three feet of snow, uphill, each way, when I was a kid.
That is actually true about waking uphill both ways through three feet of snow to the bus stop. Ask me sometime and I will explain.
What walking to the bus stop through snow has to do with them using an out house is, I'm not sure, but anytime I can tell them that story, I take the opportunity to do so.

No, I really do not make the kids do that, or at least that is what they will say if you ask them. They had no clue why we asked them to walk ahead holding their hands up!

God bless and may everything be done to serve his glory.
