Twenty-Five Cents

Kolby Fehlberg-BurnsComment

Last month, Jim and went to the hardware store. We took the truck and parked away from the store entrance. On the way back to the truck, we started talking about the price of gas when we started to drive back in the 1970's.  

I remember that when I started to drive it was 25 cents a gallon. Jim says it was 27 cents.


We had come to the conclusion that it was 25 cents in Montana where I was and it must have been 27 cents in Kansas where he was.

Just as we reached the truck and came to this conclusion, I looked down on the parking lot and there was a quarter! So 25 cents it was! 

Yesterday, I found another quarter in a restroom and I remembered the discussion. I usually find pennies. I'll take it!

Thanks for Listening.
