  1. The above prompt is another I cannot ignore. I have decided to write a part 2 to my short story entitled Uh Hellooo!? thanks to the above pic. It is entitled Uh Hellooo…And you Are?
    This is where I am to date…..

       Greetings, please take a seat. It’s so nice to see you again. 
       My head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton. My eyes feel like they’re glued shut. Perhaps I can open them just a tad to start. Oh, that’s a little better. Wait! Where am I? This is certainly not the man’s office. I see no doctors or nurses, no patients sitting in chairs. It’s cold and damp and the air smells putrid. There’s dust and grime everywhere, floating in the air. I feel so disoriented; my legs can’t feel the floor. Looking straight, I see the horizon.
       It won’t do me any good to panic. 
       Readers, perhaps you could send me some good vibes to help me assess my situation. 
       Suddenly, I feel so Zen-like. Zen… my goodness, the feeling seems so foreign, but it does seem to be working. I’m almost back to my old self, old being the watchword here. My bones feel creaky and I feel lighter, as if I’m missing a part of me. 
       Pardon me kind sirs and ladies, allow me to close my eyes so that I may inventory my parts, please, no peeking. I trust you will respect my wishes.
         Hello again, I see that took some time. The sky has darkened since we last spoke, well, not we since this is a one-sided conversation. 
       After a close inspection of my being, I am happy to report that I am still serviceable, albeit, not fully. My bottom shelf is shattered; my mirror is almost certainly cracked or gone completely; I am missing three hooks, two on the left and one on the right. Oh, and my handy drawer is history. Lastly, something is weighing on me; when I say weighing I don’t mean thoughts or wonders, of which I have many. There is an actual weight on one of my remaining hooks. For now, it’s a mystery. With my mirror broken, I no longer see as good as I once did. 
       I assure you this funk is only temporary. In time I will recover. After all, I did not get to be this old by mere happenstance. I have served a purpose in the past and I expect I will continue to do some good in this world, wherever and whenever I am. One of my hooks is being used by something and I must believe there is a reason for everything. And even though my vision is impaired and distorted I can still see something on my right side. I may be broken and weaker than I once was but I am not out for the count just yet. 
       Dear readers, please don’t give up on me; I need your support.
    
       The start of a brand new day and I am still tilted and in the same spot I was in yesterday but I will not despair. The sun is shining overhead, at least that is something even though the air is still cold and impure. Gee, I needed a good night’s rest. Yesterday’s awakening took a lot out of me; I let my fears get the best of me. Today I intend to ascertain exactly where I am, the when will have to wait, with age comes patience. 
       My bodily position tells me I am wedged and leaning between two heavy metal objects. Only one of my feet is touching what must be rocky ground. Blind on my left I can still see blurry images on my right. In the distance I see two stacks of what seem to be smashed cars stacked one upon the other. Based on what I see and feel I must conclude that I have been discarded and thrown on a junk heap. I wonder if this is what people call a ‘Junkyard’? I also spy a rundown shack to the right of the taller stack. With any luck there is a man or a woman inside. Patience is a virtue so I wait…
