Which is worse?

Dog barking constantly

Or

Dog whimpering and crying constantly because they put a bark collar on her?

"I gave my three year old daughter some worthless coins, and jokingly told her that she was rich. She went and hid the coins away, and I forgot all about them. Around the same time, my oldest daughter got a bunch of money from her aunts and uncles for her birthday. A few months later, we needed money for food, and I asked my oldest daughter if we could use some of her birthday money. She refused. I almost started crying, because I thought then that I had completely failed as a parent. But suddenly, my youngest daughter appeared, and gave me back the handful of coins that I had given her."
(Mexico City, Mexico)

This story is like a parable Jesus would tell in the Bible.

C’mon, you had one job and you managed to screw it up.

30 Fun Facts About ‘The Voyage of the Mimi’

Thirty years ago this month, The Voyage of the Mimi debuted on PBS.

The Mimi visited Bridgeport when we were watching the series in school (I can’t remember if it was 5th or 6th grade). We went on a field trip to see it.

I also remembering the snickering about the hypothermia scene.
