Very young entrepreneurs denied the opportunity to cook and sell fried chicken

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this in a shop window.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked if he thought that we will soon be seeing very young entrepreneurs (from the age of 3) preparing and selling fast food on the streets of our neighborhood. He smiled and told me that despite its realistic appearance it was just a toy.

Hmm. That is disappointing. I sometimes feel hungry during our walks through the neighborhood and would have enjoyed some chicken pieces seasoned with Sanders’ recipe of 11 herbs and spices.

The sun worshipers

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I discovered a small island inhabited by several dogs who wore a symbol of the sun on their ears.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that we had discovered a previously unknown sun worshiping cult that had decided to live on the island to avoid religious persecution.

The tall person smiled and explained that the dogs were in fact ordinary street dogs that had found a safe place to sleep on the busy sidewalk. The yellow disc on their ears indicated that they had been neutered and released back on to the street.

Hmm. Then why were they chanting?

They were snoring replied the tall person.

We walked away very quietly, so as not to disturb their prayers.

Whatever you do don’t blow your bugle!

On my walk through the neighborhood this morning I saw this confusing set of instructions.

I pointed it out to the tall person and suggested that as we had wandered into a highly restricted zone we would need to very careful not to transgress the rules.

The tall person agreed.

Hmm. I have one suggestion tall person. Perhaps you should stop playing your bugle before we proceed.

He reluctantly agreed but thought it was unfair that this simplest of brass instruments, that has no valves or other pitch-altering devices, had been singled out.

I couldn’t argue with that.

“Just finished reading Bassa’s World. It’s such a happy book, I didn’t want it to end. It’s written tenderly showing the wonders of the world through Bassa’s eyes. Bassa taught me a lot. It was interesting finding out about her, her family and the country she lives in. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves animals”.
