Greetings: FFftPP – Week #8



WEEK #08



This is Bottle # 4. There were five.

These are the last remains of my celebration extravaganza.

My last hurrah.

I had been cancer-free for the last seventeen years. They’ve been wonderful.

But, all good things…

My late husband left me well-funded. More than I could ever spend… or even thoughtfully give away.

So, I have bequeathed my last fifty-million in trust funds.

Actually, five separate accounts.

You are now the beneficiary of TEN MILLION dollars.

Take this embossed letter to Strafford & Sons: my law firm in Chicago.

May you enjoy it as much as I,

Madalyn Hughes

Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.
