FFfAW-Pot of Gold

We chased the the rainbow for miles, looking for the pot of gold at the end. We were just kids and believed in the silly tale.

Trying to find the end of the rainbow wasn't easy but finally we found it! To our disappointment the pot of gold at the end was a little camp trailer.

I was devastated! Randall and I had plans to spend all that money we would find at the end.

Randall kissed me and dried the tears from my cheeks.

“Aww honey, it was the fun that counts.”

“Let's go home.” I told him.

“No, let's go inside the trailer. Maybe there will be something interesting.”

We carefully walked up to the trailer and knocked on the door.

The door slowly creaked open and an old lady stuck her head out the door.

To my surprise she asked us if we were Randall and Bess.

“Yes! How did you know that?”

“I know a lot of things,” she smiled.

Then handed us a check from my grandmother. My inheritance.

  1. Next time I am going to chase the rainbow for its pot of gold for sure!
    Loved that fairy tale kind happy ending PJ!

  2. Wallie and I love your take on the “pot of gold”! In fact, I think Wallie prefers yours for the happy ending (the traitorous imp!). But it really is great to see all that chasing after rainbows isn’t for nothing! We both really enjoyed this.

I would love to read your thoughts...
