Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

What do you do when you run out of TP?

this is not a joke.
I just heard on the 4 PM news, that a truck lost a case of TP in the canyon on I-25 and it broke open and drivers are stopping and scrambling to pick up the loose rolls of TP! For real! the back up is more than 1/2 mile long........It would be really funny if it wasn't so sad.

For real? Back around 1984 we had a full house. My family plus moms boyfriend, his two kids and his brother and his cousin. So things ran out faster than normal.
On separate occasions I cut up a paper shopping bag, a pair of worn out underwear and then a couple of coffee filters. Mom would have been pissed about the coffee filters. She loves her coffee. :)
And no, I didn't flush any of this. I bagged it for the trash.
And much like Scarlett I have endeavored to always have to.
By that I mean I started keeping my own roll which went with me when I needed to go.
Much like my own bar of bath soap , but for different reasons.

I remember clearly after DESERT STORM we moved into KHOBAR TOWERS while we waited to be flown back to the states, the toilets in the apts we couldn't throw the TP in, the bathroom plumbing wouldn't be able to handle it, they were not for putting toilet paper in, just crap and pi$$. we had to bag up the TP in plastic bags and throw it with the trash

Actually the Sears (Sears, Roebuck and Company, founded 1893), as well as monkey wards (Montgomery Ward founded 1872) catalog worked much better than corn cobs. Others close to town had newspapers. As a kid in the 1950s, the out houses at the northern Wi hunting cabins still had catalogs for TP. :roll: :roll:

Ronald Barlow's: The Vanishing American Outhouse, 1989/1999 is still a classic among archaeologists.
