Visiting the outhouse, a daily activity

This is a photo of the start of a typical day when I was a kid. The first visit to the bathroom. In this case the outhouse. It was located in the back yard about 20 to 30 yards from the house. There was a wood walk from the house to the outhouse(slippery in the winter). I'm in my usual outfit, long johns, a jacket and my Dad's shoes. The cold weather and seats made the experience, a rough way to start the day. It was several years before my Dad built 'indoor' plumbing in our basement.
