Burning down the sh*t house!

To quote one of my all time favorite bands-the Talking Heads:

Hold tight, wait 'till the party's over
Hold tight, we're in for nasty weather

My house S'out of the ordinary
That's right Don't want to hurt nobody
Some things sure can sweep me off my feet
Burning down the house

That's what went though my mind on Oregon's Nesmith Point when I stumbled upon this pitiful privy, this dilapidated house of defecation, this languished log cabin, this crumbling crapper, this bombed out bun warmer! Okay, you get my point. I have a soft spot in my heart and a rumble in my stomach for outhouses and I often shed a tear and pass a little gas at the thought of seeing one of these structures that has served me and others so well left abandoned, abused, unloved and fading into the anals (yes, that's no word usage error) of history. Let's all bow our heads now, a little moment of silence-RIP!
