Here we are this week at the shed where some bathroom fixtures have been stored. We’ve gathered to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us this week and every week is to write a story with not more than 100 words, not counting the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end. and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by a writer who goes by What’s His Name. Thanks, What’s.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.

Word Count: 100 Words
NOT EXACTLY BURIED TREASURE by P.S. Joshi
My dad bought a cottage with attached toilet in the year 1943. We used the place for holiday getaways. My parents later turned it into a year-round home.
The septic tank now filled up quicker. One day in the 1950’s it rebelled and Dad had a problem made bigger by not knowing where the tank was.
He suspected where it might be and dug in that area. Bingo.
Dad and a willing relative uncovered more and called for a truck to empty it. It was small so we had to watch how much toilet paper we flushed.
