Happy New Year!

I'm doing this for Susan's microFiction Monday. You can too! Just write a short tale (fiction preferred) about this picture in less than 140 characters and spaces. Then tell her and wait for the critique and praises! Here goes my entry:

Texaco Star, The Way To Go!

Bernard was so sold on the stuff that he sold his car to buy some more.

His are now worth a cool million.

I'm not clever enough to do this, but you are.

Have a terrific day Jim. Big hug. :)
Happy new year, feller.
Smart guy, Bernard! He's a shrewd predictor of the market.

Happy 2011, Jim--hope it's a great one for you and Mrs. Jim!
you are quite the story teller Jim! :)

I wrote a christmas tale, back at christmas ! would that count?

over at my jelspeaks blog :)
Sold his car to buy more --- oooh, I'm envious of that one! Just the kind of odd I like.

I hope he spends his profits on a wider variety of products .... LOL
Like buying Intel at $7. Smart cookie for sure!
Very clever, I just wish I could hit the market like your guy!
Smart investment!!! :O)
Yes, you are quite a story teller indeed, Jim! I love yours. Thanks for stopping by and your comment. I was born and raised in Texas, so I do know about George! Hope your new year is off to a great start filled with all the good things!

Don't need a car with a cool million! LOL!
oh goodness, he's worth millions now.
Which my family had bought some of this stock!

Happy New Year, Jim.
Hi Jim ~~ Would you please wish Mrs. Jim a very happy birthday for tomorrow - 4th January. I hope she
has a wonderful day. Cheers, Merle.
Indeed a good investment

Happy New Year Jim - best to you
Sounds as though he traded in that car for a limo. I'd take some of that luck. :)
Ah, the lucky chap :-)
Wow! Just shows you one never knows when or where Lady Luck will show up. Who'd a thunk it would be in a Texaco tin!
You have created a very clever little tale. This is about the 5th one I have read and I love it. I wish I had it in me, but I guess it cannot hurt to give it a shot.
Clever old Bernard! :O)
sold his car for more grease!! good one

Happy New Year to all
Hope sends hugs
He's got some good business sense, and not afraid to take a risk! Good one!
The lucky star. Nice MF140. I played this week for the first time.
nice one..

well done.
What a pity we haven't all got hindsight!
Wish I could be smart as Bernard! :)

Happy New Year, Jim!
