Some thoughtful pieces.

The old seller replied, '$0.25 an egg, Madam.' She said to him, 'I will take 6 eggs for $1.25, or I will leave.' The old seller replied, 'Come take them at the price you want.

This may be a good beginning because I have not been able to sell even a single egg today. 'She took the eggs and walked away feeling she had won.

She got into her fancy car and went to a posh restaurant with her friend.

There, she and her friend ordered whatever they liked. They ate a little and left a lot of what they ordered. Then she went to pay the bill.

The bill cost her $45.00; she gave $50.00 and asked the restaurant owner to keep the change.

This incident might have seemed normal to the owner but very painful to the poor egg seller.

The point is, why do we always show we have power when we buy from needy ones? And why are we generous to those who do not even need our generosity? My father used to buy simple goods from poor people at high prices, even though he did not need them.

Sometimes he even used to pay extra for them. I got concerned by this act and asked him why he did so? Then my father replied, "It is a charity wrapped with dignity, my child."


"I asked an elderly man once what it was like to be old and to know the majority of his life was behind him.

He told me that he has been the same age his entire life. He said the voice inside of his head had never aged.

He has always just been the same boy. His mother's son. He had always wondered when he would grow up and be an old man. He said he watched his body age and his faculties dull but the person he is inside never got tired. Never aged. Never changed.

Our spirits are eternal. Our souls are forever. The next time you encounter an elderly person, look at them and know they are still a child, just as you are still a child and children will always need love, attention and purpose." ❤️


The man brought the four cards, the four boxes of candy, and the four sets of flowers up to the cashier for checkout. The cashier rolled her eyes at him as she looked at his wedding band and mumbled…”these players make me sick.” This caused everyone else to look at the man funny too.

So the man responded…”one set is for my mom because my dad passed away and he used to do this for my mom…and he taught me how to give love.

The next set is for my wife because I love her and she teaches me how to receive and treasure love.

And the third set is for my daughter…because it’s up to me to teach her how she should be treated and who she should give her love to.

And you can have my fourth set because I just wanted you to know that a man can show you love and understanding and not want anything from you. Have a blessed day.”

She melted and everyone else did too. just goes to show you don’t judge someone you know nothing about!! love it.❤️


"I went to the shelter and told them I want the puppy that no one takes They showed me this angel !!!!

They told me that all the brothers from this rescue already have families ...

Nobody chose him !!!

I do not know how people think but I fell in love with him !!!!

Especially his teeth are for kissing !!!! Let's go home oh !!!!

Thank you for not choosing him! "


I recently spent $6,500 on this registered Black Angus bull. I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow.

I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyway......I had the Vet come and take a look at him. He said,, the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young. 😂

so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day.

The bull started to service the cows within two days……. all my cows!

He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine! I don't know what was in the pills the Vet gave him ... but they kind of taste like peppermint. 🤣

( Look at the size of that animal, it's HUGE...)


And of course we have to have a political joke in here some place...

and who is the biggest political joke anyone can think of :-


What is all the fuss about - I mean - really ? We DO take far fewer refugees that many other countries. I am not sure WHAT policy would work and anything and everything tried will be pulled apart as unfair and cruel by someone, somewhere, so you cannot win.

The BBC clearly haven't a clue. First they lost Top Gear and then Bake Off - two of their top programmes and now they are in a complete disarray with this recent mess and it seems they run around like chickens without a clue ...


Tonight I witnessed an act of kindness which brought me to tears. We went out to eat at Cracker Barrel. As we were almost finished, we noticed an elderly woman sitting all alone, drinking a milk and waiting for her meal.

A million thoughts went through my mind. She looked so very lonely.. Is she widowed? Where is her family? Why is she at a restaurant at almost 8pm (which is stereotypically like midnight in old people time).

Also seated next to us were 3 big, burly, middle aged, blue collar, hard working, hungry men.

I asked Tom if we should buy her dinner or if we should go sit with her... then one of our boys did/said something which momentarily distracted us but when we looked back up, these big burly guys were moving the frail elderly woman to their table.

We continued to watch them interact. The woman was smiling from ear to ear, her face all lit up and she was just a-talking like she hadn’t talked to another human in a very long time. I seriously was choked up, as was Tom.

As we left, we left them some money for their meal and Tom thanked them for restoring our faith in humanity... I snapped a picture but really, I will forever remember this moment..
