Hey Blondie, Maybe we stood for what seemed like hours in the same restroom line. LOL Or what about food and ice cream lines? Crazy times Huh?
The drinking water delivery system was unique, remember? Metal pipes at adult and child height with constantly running cold water that bubbled up from holes drilled into the pipe at appropriate intervals. (The WTS probably did not want to be sued by people who got sick from dehydration). We did bring our own water in insulated jugs half-filled with ice and then water. Worked great at our seats.
We brought our own food (when it was not "cool"), ate at a food stand across from our motel for breakfast and ate what was leftover from lunch for supper (between the afternoon and evening session, yes, evening sessions lasted until 9pm). Then when we got back to the motel, a snack and a dip in the heated outdoor pool until midnight. (My mother and another sister had wine).
The only thing I remember about the restrooms is that there were lines all during the sessions, sisters and children that is. The 2 boys had it easy. My mother worked out the best time to go, before the song and during the prayer and not to wait until you felt like the floodgates of heaven were about to fall. We went right away at the convention when we arrived scoping out the best locations.
There was a weather event combined with the smog (pre-PC laws) that kept the smog low and in the same spot. We got sick from that. Sun beating down during the day and when the sun went down freezing cold. Umbrellas for the sun, coats for the evening.
We discovered Mexican food then, burritos, tacos, refried beans, etc. Still a big fan.
