Bean Happy

Africa far and wide

l Ieft them with a bag of beans and told them that this was their chance to change everything.

I was not sure how Lourdes would cope – it being the second time ever venturing into a major city, on her own. Would she remember where to go, would she remember how to get back home? Would she remember to look left and right before crossing a road? Would she have saved up enough money to buy another bag of beans? Would she get this business going?

I went away for 2 weeks and hoped they would manage to kick start this small business without depending on me to make it work. I hoped they would take this opportunity to uplift their family, to escape their tragic circumstances and importantly to restore their dignity.

I visited them today. And I don’t know who was more happy – them or me!

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
