I finally got the latest Jack Reacher book from the library, and as usual, it hooked me right away. So random thoughts today will be short and sweet so I can get back to my book.
Lily and Emmy have been watching Word World on PBS, and all the animals can talk. Sheep can talk, Bear can talk, Frog can talk, and even the bugs talk. They have been given the gift of gab. And the gift of spelling. But ol’ Dog is still just a dog. He may be able to help out with plurals, but the poor creature can only bark. How unfair is that?
I sat down to read a Franklin book to the girls the other day. Franklin is a turtle. He is the only animal in the book with a real name. All his friends are named Bear, Goose, Snail, and Moose. What makes Franklin so special that he gets a real name? He’s a nice turtle, but still….
It’s the little things that get my attention.
