A three legged ladybug who spends her days as a money box. As if!
Meet Miss Ladybug, a friend of mine for some years now and a useful friend indeed. Some time ago she was in an accident and lost a leg but she didn't let an injury hold her back. No, she spent her days and nights hiding in plain sight, fulfilling her destiny.
Although she is a lady, she does like money so we made a deal. She stands up tall, as best she can and takes my money and holds onto it until that rainy day comes.
We were saving for a new sewing machine, depositing coins in her rounded back whenever I spent real money. I have even been known to 'break' a note just to have some extra coins to add.
And then disaster struck. No not him, thank goodness. It's worse.
