Today is the FIRST day of the rest of your life!

A social  worker from a big City (Houston) recently transferred to Tatum, Tx...  a small community. This  was on the first tour of her new territory when she came  upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen in her  life..

Intrigued, she went up and knocked on the door.  'Anybody home?' she asked.
'Yep,' came a kid's voice  through the door.
'Is your father there?' asked the social worker..
'Pa?  Nope, he left before Ma came in,' said the kid.
'Well, is your  mother there?' persisted the social worker.
'Ma? Nope, she left  just before I got here,' said the kid.

'But,' protested the  social worker, 'are you never together as a family?'

'Sure,  but not here,' said the kid through the door....... 'This is  the Outhouse!' 

I'm in the middle holding the doors. Betty McClure to the right and Jean to the left. This is an old two holer outhouse that was once part of a complex built in the early '30's for the community. The privy is all that is left.  I can't remember the name of the group off hand, but at the time they were a celebrated bunch of educated ladies who were sponsored by a gentleman back east who wanted to make sure women were educated. American something-er-orther.
FOUND IT!  This is the American Woman's League Chapter House (the outhouse is off to the left and you can't see it).  Interesting group - look them up and see if they were in your area, too!
