Ray's world of outhouses

I have always been interested in outhouses.  Before the invention of indoor plumbing, they were an essential part of life.  Outhouses are still in use today, but, with the passage of time, they will unfortunately become extinct.

My fascination with these outdoor facilities began when, as a child, I threw my uncle's cat down the toilet hole.  My uncle lowered and angled a long board down the hole and the cat climbed unhurt, but stinky, to safety.  I'm not sure who was in the most danger, me or the cat.  Please feel free to share similar stories.
