ACE IN THE HOLE

It’s Quadrille time at dVerse
The word “ACE” is to be used
in our 44 word quadrille.

****************
















Momma didn’t trust the bank
(It failed in ‘29)
She hid her stash under the guest room rug
“That way” she said, “I know it’s mine”
Momma was always thrifty
A faithful, happy soul 
Hidden where guests slept
Was momma’s ace in the hole.

  6. Yes, my great grandparents didn't use a bank - stashed it all over the house. Thanks for the reminder.

  7. LOL! Nice. Yep, parents of the Great Depression had habits like that for sure. Mine did too.
