Grandma Had a Bright Idea


By, Nan Claire Falkner

As Sara entered the yard sale, she felt tingling up her spine.  There was a table on the front porch with old lamps.  One caught her eye – a clear glass lantern with dried roses inside kept next to Grandmas bed.   She died without a will on file, so her worthless son took everything.  Sara’s mom got zip.

Sara purchased the lamp and quickly got in her car, locked the doors and took a deep breath.  As she unscrewed the cap, she held her breath.   Under the rose petals in the base of the lamp were Grandma’s jewels.  “Thanks Grandma!”

    • I will never forget that mansion you, your Mother, and I went to in KC that had the coolest stuff in the world in! Of course, some of the floors were water damaged, but it was so cool! I miss those days Pammy! Thanks for stopping by! Nan 🙂
