    If that’s a fable, where’s the moral?
    .
    It’s a myth.

    Hmm, I wonder where that puddle came from?

    Don’t trust that wag in the puddle, as soon as the sun comes up he’ll be gone.

    The dog on the left looks like a Labrador Retriever, the one on the right is a Púddle

    ONE hot summer’s day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over a lofty branch. “Just the things to quench my thirst,” quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”

    I had to tell my niece the fable of the sour grapes last weekend. She’s 17 and had never heard of it! As C.S. Lewis said (in a completely different context), “Bless me, what ARE they teaching the children in the schools these days?”

    I was never much of a fan of Mr. Rogers—such a goody one-sweater!

    Well, his show was good and honest and decent, as was he. My sons and I watched “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” and it was a good program. Can’t find many things on TV these days that clean and innocent.
