PHOTO PROMPT © Ted Strutz

“Remember old Joe?”

“That happy old timer who was always looking for the next big deal? He must have lost thousands.”

“Well, he chased after so many of them he finally made it rich.”

“No.”

“Yeah.”

“How much?”

“Some $500,000.”

“At his age, that’s more than enough for him to live on until he dies.”

“Not really.”

“What?”

“He spend it on a land deal in the swamps.”

“You’ve got to be kidding. That guy is an idiot.”

“Not really.”

“What?”

“They’re going to build a city. They’re going to call it Miami. Old Joe is now worth $5 Million.”
