On a summer visit to GrandDad’s, Jessi asked him to tell her about life in the North Woods.
Pleased, he shared tales about life in a log cabin, about making midnight trips to the two-seater outhouse, and the many wonders of the great outdoors. GrandDad stressed the importance of nature, and to always respect wildlife.
Jessi was fascinated with his colourful stories, but very confused about a “two-seater” outhouse.
Grinning, GrandDad explained: when going to the outhouse, if you came upon a bear using it, you showed respect and left him alone. But you could still use the other seat.
