A Strange Tale of Peter s Grandfather BASKET PD pixabay

Peter lives with his wife and grandfather. 

He gets bored with his job of growing flowers and selling them at the market. 

One day he digs up an old, dirty washing basket. 

Grandfather sneezes at the same time the clock strikes One, the scrubbing brush his wife was using to clean the basket falls into it, and their fortune changes. 

At first things seem fabulous, but when Peter lets greed get the better of him, events take a turn for the worse.
