You are desperate to use the bathroom. But, you share this with several others. It's down the hall (waaaay down the hall), and it's cold despite the heat being set to the 'normal' temperature. Being an older person, your legs and ability to hold it ain't what it used to be. How do you handle this dire situation?

Well really it’s a no brainer. I’m old enough to know about toilets being waaaay down the backyard, never mind being down the hall.
What did folks do then, especially in the middle of the night and the snow is six inches deep?
Has everyone heard about a chamber pot? Also known as a guzunder (goes under the bed)
Maybe the receptacle you would have to utilise in this prompts scenario isn’t made for purpose but I’m sure one could find something? When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.

PROMPT November 10th

Your neighbor’s hay crop is ready to harvest. Everyone in their family is sick and their Combine is broken. How do you respond to this situation?

Is my Combine still working? Well, hopefully I would have the time in between getting my own hay crop in to bring in my neighbours too. Whatever I’ve heard about the farming community then there wouldn’t be a farmer who would watch a neighbours harvest go to waste. They pull together, for who knows who’s the next to need help. It may be me?
Looking at this prompt makes me think of my neighbourhood. I know there are at least three of my close neighbours who would come to my aid if so needed. It goes without saying my husband and I will help anyone who needs us to help. No man is an island, as the saying goes. We all need help from others at sometime.
