The Title grabbed me, the story held me, and I'm aiming to tell ya - you're right on target, topic-wise, the piece was entertaining, had a message, and I wish I knew what Uncle Harold thought later when he found out about Prosperity? (Smile) Delightful entry. Enjoyed it.

What a great imagination! This was fun to read. I thoroughly enjoyed the 'underdog' coming out on top. No suggestions here, just keep up the great writing!

Loved it! I haven't read every entry yet, but I'm willing to bet that you're the only person who associated "prosperity" and "manure." Made my day, and the writing was delightful.

Great story! Very amusing. I loved the impromptu prayer about sending an angel because Uncle Harold wasn't gonna help.
This was a cute story. I enjoyed reading it very, very much.

We ALWAYS love this kind of story. Kinda satisfying in an unsatisfying world. Thank you Dub!

Great title and story. Just like something the Lord would do. Really enjoyed it.
I love manure and the lesson it teaches (and compost!) I can't believe I didn't think of a way to use it for 'prosperity'. However, I couldn't have done the justice to the subject that you have.
Wonderful story telling, I experienced it from beginning to end...(in my imaginiation it was BelAir,Maryland 1965)

Ha ha ha! This is the first humourous Prosperity entry I've read - how refreshing! Delightful characters, charming wit, and a surprising little lesson - as always. Thanks, Dub!

You dear writer! You had me chuckling before I finished reading the first sentence. This is great writing, a wonderful story, entertaining characters, it just has everything. It is going in my favorites, and I hope you get it published. God bless your writing and thanks!
Very fun!! Loved the jargon/dialogue/local slang. Clever and it is comforting to see the underdog win without even trying. :-)

Classic!!
Great example that "God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think!"
I loved this one. A heart warming story for sure.

Good read Dub. I loved the way Billy did an end run around his uncle with the help of a little prayer. The last shall be first...
