There once was a great site called Toluna, who made contests with rules that most people didn't follow because they didn't read the instructions, so they made the rule more clear but whether or not that helped is still up for debate.

There once was a girl named Fiona
Who met a new girl named Ramona
They lived lavishly in New York City
Meeting boys and being so witty
Together they were a dynamic pair
Never leaving the house without designer clothes and great hair
It was 2010
denim was very on trend
With parents considered elite
They was rarely a celebrity left to meet
It all came to an end
When their life had to mend
After their parents cut them off
And they had to move into a loft
and live the life of normalcy
in the city

"My April Story"** "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished!" (Quote attributed to Oscar Wilde) It is based on an incident which occurred when I was walking my daughter's dog on April 20th a few decades ago (not the same April 20th of both my son's and my daughter's wedding anniversary -- no, they didn't marry each other! -- nor the April 20th of my son's birthday -- but the date of the following incident/accident sticks more easily and firmly in my mind because of the congruity of all those memorable April 20th). I was walking my daughter's dog and saw that someone had left a quart of orange juice behind their vehicle in their driveway. So playing the part of a "Good Samaritan" I walked the dog over to the orange juice, picked it up, and started to walk with it up the steps to the front door of the house to ring the bell and hand it over to its owner(s). Of course, I missed a step and fell on my wrist on the way up the stairs. But I did manage to leave the errant orange juice at the front door and ring the bell before I somehow got the dog and myself home, called an ambulance to take me to the nearest hospital, and there, had the damaged assessed (broken wrist, which required a metal plate inserted to stabilize it). Moral of the story? MYOB! "Keep the story going!" Have your good deeds ever resulted in unintended negative consequences?

There once was a gorgeous, orange cat who was abandoned by heartless "guardians" by being thrown out of their car right in front of where my son-in-law was taking his son for Sunday School. My son-in-law called my daughter to let her know what had occurred and asked if I could take the cat, at least temporarily before the Humane Society opened at noon. I said, "Sure!" even though he and my daughter were aware that that wasn't the optimal solution, since the cat might get euthanized if the Humane Society didn't deem it "adoptable." So my son-in-law told several people at the congregation what had happened. Guess what! They all volunteered to take the cat home with them. My son-in-law decided to give the cat to a woman whose cat, which had looked similar to the abandoned cat, had died a few days ago. Perfect solution. Moral of the story? "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." (Margaret Mead)
Continue the "story" with your own example of caring people making a difference, making the world a better place for people AND animals!

There once was a widowed man that spent the last few years of his life walking the same cobblestone streets he had met his late wife on. On a dismal Sunday evening he came across a small bird sheltering itself under a clutter of boxes. Approaching slowly, he noticed the bird appeared injured. The old man, happy for the company, cradled the bird and took it home. Nursing the bird slowly back to health, the pair developed a close companionship. The day finally came for the bird to be released, as the man opened for the window for the bird to fly out, it hesitated. The man noticed and told the little bird that it was alright, he had experienced loss before and would be fine alone once more. To his surprise the bird responded, "Thank you for nursing me, of the hundreds of people that passed me on the street, only you cared to stop. For that, I will bring you with me. It is no longer time for you to be alone. Come with me." And together the pair flew out the window, toward the sky where they were always meant to be.

They were lucky enough to also find a wooden bat under the Dogwood tree. This was great, because they could do more than just throw the ball. Now they could also hit the ball with the bat. This did make them wonder who's bat and ball it was. Maybe they were from someone famous. Could it be ......
