Obviously I cheated a bit by running over to gettyfreeimages.com and getting a picture. But that move was not planned until I chose my topic, “If wishes were horses, beggers could ride.” I wish I could remember the rest of the verse. I’m hampered from doing so because that really doesn’t fit in a Stream of Consciousness writing. Or does it? No, I don’t think so.
For my first “if” I am reminded of the classic Miss America question that goes something like this, “If you had three million dollars, what would you do with it?” Miss America contestant responds, “I would feed all the hungry children in the world.” I go, “What, with three million dollars, you could hardly feed the hungry children on one continent.” Well that comes with having to have a budget, which most Miss America contestants have not yet experienced.
My second “if” – “So, Oneta, Miss Wisecrack, if you have three million dollars, what would you do with it?” Humm? That takes some thinking. First slice, taxes, second slice, tithes. There is a healthy hunk left. I would give to Two for Tunnels. Is that what it is called? Some charity that pleads for $11 a month. I don’t give to them now but I could no doubt find eleven a month to spare, so what makes me think I will give to them, if I have more. Answer is that I don’t give to any charity that I do not know about. I want my charity to go to the mission not the administrators. So let’s say I would check them out to see how much really goes to disabled veterans.
Now I have done my civic duties. Now what? I would pay off my kids house mortgages. I would buy a new car. I hate changing cars so I am only willing to do it one more time. I would have to buy one that will last the rest of my life. That might be a problem since I don’t know how long we will have gasoline engines.
This is getting long so I’ll just invite those of you who have read this far to send me your name and telephone number for a grand drawing of $500 bucks, Then the rest I will keep for little goodies along my way. If I go broke, I have your phone number; you will be hearing from me as I beg for just $11 a month.
Thank you, Linda, for this Saturday fun with other folks in your blogging community. https://lindaghill.com/2021/10/15/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-october-16-2021/
