It sounds great! At first I was like "Out House"? Then I figured that was a typo. You guys do have indoor facilities, yes? :P

ROTFL...oh Susan how did I miss that! I guess having the "T" and the "R" right next to each other on the keyboard can be a problem when typing the word "our" in conjunction with "house". Thanks for noticing, I guess. And yes we do have indoor facilities! And no, I don't normally welcome people to my outhouse!

I fixed the typo here, but I think it is frozen in "Jacketflap" space forever.
