55 - Pioneer

Old man Guenther had a grist mill
and for years sold the finest flour,
but he wanted to go one better
and build a big stone tower.

It reached far above the tree line
and people talked of it far and near.
Guenther made his fortune by thinking big!
You could say he was a...pioneer.













Got a story you can tell in 55 words? The G-Man wants to know!

Guenther must have moved to America as he sounds like an "evil" capitalist! (sorry, I'm a bit bent out of shape today ... Seen too many Facebook Rep/Dem back and forth today!

Nic....thinking BIG is the way to go. If someone doesn't think big, nothing big happens.

I'm not sure how his tower made his fortune, but I do like towers.

@Alice: The tower was part of his new mill, silly! :-)
