She lived a life that some would describe as being on edge. For being adventurous, but also for getting into financial trouble after her adventures…
One day, she could not believe her eyes, when she saw a sign announcing a 5 acre lot on sale for 10 cents. 10 cents?????
She didn’t think twice and bought the property.
Her days of renting would soon be over. All she needed was to build a simple house where she could live. And then, try to make some money out of the land somehow.
Simple and easy.
But the land she bought was home to a big community of wild unfriendly buffalos.
Every time she started something, the buffalos would destroy everything.
She tried several times, and got it all destroyed several times.
She could not kill them all (that’s what she felt like doing) because in that land, buffalos were protected by federal law.
It ended up being the worse invested 10 cents in her entire life.

As has been said, “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.” Good story and well done, Etol. 🙂 — Suzanne
Hahaha! What rotten luck! However, the acreage will look good on a financial statement! Great story Etol!
