Depreciation


I was walking around the abandoned church when I saw something in the grass. I picked it up, and found this $1 bill. It was crinkly from the rain, and tattered from both weather and insects.

How long had it sat there? Who dropped it? I'll never know.

My silly side tells me ... maybe someone dropped a $10 bill, and it shrank in all that rain we had this Spring!

What stories do YOU think this $1 would tell?

Maybe a young loving soul was waiting to buy a rose, waiting and waiting, to be reasured - at some point in time, hope did escape and so the bill.

There's this meth guy--who, when trying to cut the 220 power lines in search of wire, not only zapped himself silly, but all the change whapped out of his pockets--including this dollar bill. Perhaps you'll find more of his mottled money nearby...

(grin) Remind you of a true story? EEEeeek!

Wow, that is a really beaten dollar. I think a kid dropped it, then was heartbroken when he got home and couldn't find his money.

Wow! The most I've found lately is a dime.

I think it has been there for a while waiting for YOU.
