a story for the times

I’m not a thief, but in the case of this video Grandma Henke posted a few days ago, well I just couldn’t help it. It’s a small girl, couldn’t be more than four years old, who is reading or re-telling the story of Jonah and the whale. I love it for the obvious and for a couple more reasons. Note the little dress she has on. It looks like a Polly Flinders dress (I used to dress both my girls in Polly Flinders–they hated it), and another thing, she reminded me of my oldest daughter, also a precocious reader/actress, when she was that age and wore glasses from the age of three. It runs a tad long at 7 minutes or so, but I think it’s so endearing it is well worth it. (She’s a little shy when she begins, but hold on, she gets into it very quickly.) Thank you Grandma Henke for sharing this and for your own funny stories.

  1. I will catch that later in the day when I have time to sit.
    RYN: Best Buy? I hadn’t read about that. Still, there was a line around the best buy building, and at Radio Shack he was number four in line. 🙂

    • Personally I think he did the smart thing! Hubby reminded me that it’s often hard to prove an item is the same one because of the complexity of item numbers being different even when the product seems to be the very same. Money isn’t everything! There were people here who got in line for Target’s early a.m. opening at 7 p.m. Thanksgiving evening, and you must know how cold it’s been here at night! However, there are a number of businesses who will honor lowest prices at their competitor stores. You can probably google a list online.

It's always nice to know what you're thinking...
