I'm old enough that if you really had to go, hardly a door in town was locked, and you could probably use the nearest house's facilities in an emergency ;)

Don't remember that, but do remember having to walk outside to the outhouse. And since my grandparent's house didn't have running water, we had to take a bucket to the well pump and fill it up. Take back inside and take the dipper and drink right out of the dipper. Best dang water i've ever had!
I remember my grandmother letting me help churn the butter. And my grandfather robbing the bee hive and bringing a bowl of fresh honey in and sitting it on the table next to hot made from scratch biscuits! I'm sorry my son will probably never get to experience these things...but he will probably have to pay to use a restroom someday.
