What Do You Do With Two Old Toilets???

My daughters are going to be surprised by this answer because I am not usually so RACEY ! However, this was so funny, at least to me. We decided to completely replace two of our commodes while we were at it. The one in the basement was leaky and old. The lever on the one upstairs sticks in the down position, so the water would continue to run if one forgot to pull it back up. We replaced the mechanisms in it several times, and it never did work right. So, we just decided to get rid of it.
I jokingly told my husband that we could put the two old toilets in the front yard and plant flowers in them. Or, we could put them on the front porch to sit on while watching the cars go by. My husband says, "We'd look like the couple on the Cialis commercial, only we'd be on toilets instead of in bathtubs." Now, to most of you this probably isn't funny at all, but at the moment it was hilarious to me! We were at that really tired, really punchy state of mind when he said this.
I guess it's kind of sad that I'm so amused by something so silly.
On to finish the downstairs bathroom. I'm putting on baseboards today. Then, it will be finished except for buying some new towels, etc...
If you are interested in seeeing more photos of our little Emory you can go to my daughter's blog.

Oh Julia, that is so funny. We had to replace the flooring in our laundry room recently, and the washer had to go outside on the carport. There were some comments about hillbillies and mountain folk ;-) Well you get the picture.

Um. Actually I think it's really funny. Talk about a conversation piece!

Ha! Julia, you and your husband are such a stitch! BTW, where I live, there ARE toilets used as planters! NOT me--!!

Julia that was too funny. I vote for sitting them on the porch using them as chairs. Wonder how many wrecks that will cause in front of your house!
