A Not so Literary Post

I rarely blog two times a week and as most of you know, my posts are usually about reading or writing. But today I'm sharing links to my friend Barbara Younger's Friend for the Ride blog. 

Barbara blogs about menopause and all things related to mid-life and women's health issues. She has an ongoing series about ladies room doors and recently posted two blogs worth of doors I found on our cross-country trip.

Without further ado, here is Part One of The Potty Trip of all Potty Trips featuring this gas station in Broken Bow, Nebraska:



Here is Part Two, featuring these two doors from Rudy's Barbecue in Lubbock Texas to show that occasionally men's rooms doors are interesting too.


And a door that didn't make the cut, along the Sammamash River Trail in Washington:
Hope you click the above links and enjoy a quick trip across the U.S. via the potties I found along the way!

Ah. Sure it's literary. Someday you and I will write a novel in two voices. Maybe about two women who go around the world photographing ladies room doors.

Love that idea, Barbara. My fantasy dream is to be a photo journalist. We'll start with ladies room doors!

Clever you! I agree with Barbara in the comment above that it is literary. The eye for detail is a novelist's eye. Thanks for sharing the fun.

Carol, I enjoyed this and wanted to add that I thought the two voices Barbara proposed would be a male and a female's take on the bathroom door signs. A He Said, She Said collection. Lots of possibilities her. Could be a must read in the bathroom. ;)

Thanks, Clara. I never would have thought of that and it's a great boost to start my writing this morning! "A novelist's eye"-- I hope that is what I'm developing. And LInda, what a great idea! Hmm….I'll have to see if my partner in potty crime was thinking of that! What do you say Barbara?

Barbara Younger said...

Love the idea of the voices being male and female!

You ladies, or partners in potty crime, are fun! Thanks for the potty humor! Hope you unite and make a fortune.

Carol Baldwin said...

If we do, Linda--your name goes in the credits!!!

These potty pics are great. My MIL would love to write all about loos. Looks like there is quite a bit of interest.
