Centus #100

For the 100th centus Jenny decided to go back to the first prompt that started it all.  I haven't been a very loyal centurian, ha, ha, but I couldn't pass this one up.  If you want to see my original one click herehttp://vikisplace.blogspot.com/2010/05/saturday-centus.html

This centus is a 100 words plus the prompt which was a lengthy 53 words at the time (Wowie) which will  be in blue.  Check to see what everyone came up with http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2012/03/saturday-centus-centennial-celebration.html




My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.



“Ruby this can’t be happening again” I said as I picked the money up and started counting it.

Ruby looked at me quizzically wagging her tail. 

It was the exact amount of money I found the last time.  If memory serves me correct, it was around this same place.

With my house being close to foreclosure perhaps this is a sign that I should use this money and the money I found the last time to save my house.

“What do you think Ruby, should I use it?”

“Arf” Ruby barked.

“Okay, I’ll do it.”

I like the way you have linked it to Jenny's first one! Great idea for the 100th prompt!

Nice one. Good tie back to your first one. I wasn't around for the start, but linked mine back to an earlier posting as well. In today's economy, I'm sure there are lots of people who wish they'd find a wad of $100s.

WE always listen to our dogs! Of course, we don't always understand what they are saying, but no matter!!

If I hadn't already returned the money I too would have used it for my house because I think finding the same ammount twice is a sign!Good one!~Ames

I'm glad she had validation from Ruby! And finding money twice. Yowsers...that would be some incredible luck, wouldn't it?
