My thoughts are in the toilet



Yesterday I went to the Lehigh Valley Home Builders show at Stabler with the family. Okay, so I know today's post is not about Catasauqua but I am posting it anyway, it is my blog. The best part of the show, other than getting to be with my son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren along with my daughter-in-law's family was one item at the show that just tickled my funny bone and had the potential of tickling other parts to.

This item was a toilet, not just any toilet; oh no, this was the king of toilets. First the lid automatically goes up as you approach the toilet. This toilet could play music and had a heated seat. It also had a bidet that could clean you up and then the seat featured a warm air dryer that could blow you dry. And last but surely not least, which has potential to especially please other members of your family--a built in air purifier, which continually neutralized the air in and around the bowl, leaving the air fresh and clean during and after your bathroom visit.

On my drive home I was thinking, how "George Jetson" this was. Remember when he got dressed in the morning on the cartoon "The Jetsons." Basically he was tossed out of bed, and everything else was done for him, hair combed, teeth brushed and getting dress was done by machines/robot/computers and he was on his way. I bet George had a toilet like this one to! I am surprised that we don't have more "Jetson" like things in 2011. Parke, my significant other, is still waiting for his Jet Pack. The 1964 Worlds Fair promised us we would all be traveling by jet packs in the future, well that was 47 years ago, shouldn't we have those jet packs by now.

Oh, well I guess in the meantime, we will have to settle for the toilet that washes and dries our butts.

I want to thank everyone who has been reading my blog and giving me such upbeat comments. I am leaving now for a walk to get some ideas and or pictures for tomorrow's post but in the meantime...this is just another day in Catasauqua.
