“The Muggle in a Puddle”

Walking home I encountered a Muggle.

The wee Muggle seemed stuck in a Puddle.

Working quickly I soon had him outed.

Then running on he turned back and shouted-

“Thanks, mate, for the break but I am rather late.

So sorry for the bother and trouble!”


“No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child.”

This wonderful quote has been variously attributed to Abraham Lincoln, James Dobson, Danny Thomas, and others. My feeling is that if any of them did not actually say it, each certainly could and should have.

Such a lovely sentiment and meaning, applying not only to children but also the spirit of bending over and lending a helping hand to anyone struggling or in need.

And isn’t that what we are all truly here for, to help our fellow man and beings?

Thank you always for visiting and for spending your time with us here. What can you do today to help ease another’s burdens? — Jim (and Red!)
