Save A Penny For The Right Reason!

Send a humor cardIn the times of recession, one learns the importance of saving for a rainy day. There is more to saving than just investing and generating interest and amassing dollars. Let me tell you of an incident that happened the other day and this one’s about my cute little niece, Rachel.

Rachel loves the jingle! Christmas is far away of course, but this jingle is the music that she hears when she shakes her Piggy Bank. She is proud of her savings. Her birthday falls on October 2nd, but she has forgotten the month conveniently. She just celebrates the 2nd of every month as her birthday by just collecting dough from all and sundry. Lovely little brat! She is saving up for almost half-a-dozen months now!

She is waiting for Christmas of course. She loves to splurge and I’m pretty sure she has her eyes set on a cool dress for herself. Kids love to talk, don’t they? And they do talk to themselves and sometimes to their pet poodle too. I overheard the other day when she was involved in a monologue with Kong.

She was petting his neck, “Kong, you know, I just don’t find any trousers for you, not even a toy… Poor you! You don’t wear anything. But don’t worry, I’ve saved enough dollars to get you a bow-tie collar the other day we saw at the mall.”
Giggle. Giggle.

Oops! Where did that come from?! This little tot sure has a mighty heart. Shame on you, Bob!

Moment of Zen for you people. . . Kids crawl and cry, but almost all the time they smile when they see others happy and cheerful!
One needs to save for a rainy day… True! But, what makes money saved worth? It is when we spend it on a dear and near one, who means a lot to us.

  1. B. What soldiers must go through. I can’t imagine. I saw the film, “Apocalypse Now” when it first came out. Then many times there after. Was and still is my favorite movie. In a nutshell- or should I say- on a tiny river boat, it really accurately portrayed the soldiers who fought in the Vietnam war. So tragic, so hopeless- the war- all of it. I know a few war veterans. Most seemed to have come to terms with just living life. Several had a real hard time. My father-in-law was a sailor in WWII and had many a story to tell. Some stories were funny, but some were really sad. You could see in Dad’s eyes such a sadness, reliving the events each time he told the war stories. He actually was on board 3 different war ships that sank. He was lucky to come out alive and unharmed. He lived to be 95 years old. My heart goes out to all soldiers. War changes people. Thanks for this blog, Bob. Love to Kong. Remember the soldiers finding the puppy on a Vietnamese boat, in “Apocalypse Now?” That was just the hardest scene to witness. How we are about dogs- and not so with people- it is understandable. L.

  2. Bob, we always hope that the world could be ideal though we know it is not. We could only do the best we could. My parents live through wars and they have many stories to tell. War may expose some of the worst aspects of mankind but there are many glorious people who live through it with integrity. I admire Kong who is so comforting to the injured.
