Being Five

I saw these Dolly Mixtures the other day and I was five years of age all over again.

Elly is coming today so I might give her share!  I am really looking forward to seeing her.

Back later if we run out of things to say, if not it will be tomorrow.

Thursday Special ~ A BOTTLE OF WINE

Sally was driving home from one of her business trips, in Northern Arizona, when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.

As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.    With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.

Resuming the journey, Sally tried – in vain – to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman.  The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.

“What in bag?” asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said:  “It’s a bottle of wine.  I got it for my husband.”

The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.  Then, speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said:

“Good trade . . .”




Thanks Ramana for this little tale.
