About ten years ago, Mark Sherman discovered a letter written by his grandmother to her son on three-and-a-half feet of toilet paper.
Sherman said the letter, entitled “From the Mountain Mother to a Navy son,” was a spoof intended to provide a few laughs for his father, Dave Sherman, and his Navy buddies stationed in San Francisco in Aug. 1957.The letter describes the family's new bathroom in Hillbilly English.
