CAN YOU SPARE A QUARTER

TigerPaw has generously given me permission to post this revised and extended version of his fantastic story Can You Spare a Quarter.

This is one of my favorite stories. I can't count the number of times I've read it. Each time it has had the same effect on me.

As always, let TigerPaw know how much you enjoy his story by emailing him at TgrPaw@gmail.com

Dedicated to the real Jamie
