The Millionaire


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt


Does anyone remember watching this program?  I remember thinking about what it would be like to be a millionaire and be able to buy anything I wanted.

Today, a million dollars wouldn’t  last too long. Unless the recipient chose to invest a good chunk of it, the money would soon be used up on the mortgage, a new car, a better TV, a trip somewhere, a new wardrobe. . .. it would be gone very soon.

And one thing for sure:  Money would not bring anyone true happiness. It’s fleeting,  and requires a great deal of effort if it is to be used well. Sure, it would be great to have a million bucks all of a sudden, but all I really want is to have enough. To have money leftover at the end of the month.

    1. If what I’m hearing is true, we’re going to hit a financial wall before long that will wipe out every penny we’ve invested. It’s hard to know if you should just keep your money in a tin can in the basement 🙂

      1. I had a relative on my family tree who did not trust banks. He was alive in 1929 and he cashed his checks and put the money in a sock for saving. He put the sock at a certain point of saving, into a mason jar and buried it. When ;it came time to purchase something new, like a truck, he took the socks to the Ford garage and paid for it in cash! Uncle Wally was a bit eccentric but it worked for him. He didn’t gather any interest on savings, but he didn’t pay any either on loans.
