Mindless . . .

Well, firstly, whee must tell you that the competition is now officially . . . CLOSED. Whee will be announcing the winners in the next post. It is definitely going to be a tough decision. (Molly – if you send a suitably grovelly note whee will consider allowing you as a late entry!

Now onto the main subject of our post. Mindless violence never fails to shock us. The mindlessness of the violence in that school shooting. It’s so sad. Now something violent happened at the local Scout group Christmas fair. It is not quite on the same level but these people all start somewhere. The little hoomans were helping out on a cuddly toy stall when one of them noticed shouting and laughter. He went over to investigate and found some of the older kids methodically cutting and destroying a small toy giraffe. Pulling out it’s stuffing and throwing it around. Apparently they won it and didn’t want it. So they destroyed it. Why?

The little hooman waited for them to leave and collected it up, repairing it with cardboard tubes and sellotape then brought home to Mummy. She worked for over forty minutes but finally repaired it. It needed restuffing and stitches everywhere but now he is well again. They have called him Mr Muffin – Mr Muffin who lost his stuffin’!

  1. Aw….what a sweet story. I’m so glad your Mummy repaired the giraffe. You’re right: violence does begin somewhere. So sad.
    Love, Sundae

  2. What a clever and caring mummy you have. You piggies are very lucky to be blessed with her.

  3. A very clever mummy. Much nicer to repair and build than destroy.

  4. So true, Nibbles! Evil may very well start small. Your small hooman has a kind heart, and your Mum made Mr. Muffin look better than new! The world needs lots of people like them!

    Love and licks,

  5. You are very handy! So glad you were able to make something right out of something wrong.

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  6. sadly you are right…they do start young and that incident greatly disturbs me. There is no respect for anything anymore. The little one who fixed it should be commended. The two who destroyed it need help

  7. The little hoomans are very wise – especially the one who rescued Mr. Muffin. Please thank them for us. And thanks to Mummy for fixing Mr. Muffin. There is good in this world.

  8. darn just missed it. Serves me right for not coming on here for a few days! Will be rooting for everyone!

  9. Good save mom. Why would someone do that?

  10. Good thing she repaired it! What a cute Giraffe. 🙂

  11. I’m really proud of Little Humon. Good for her, saving Muffin (love the name). As you say, the violence starts somewhere and I fear what those older children will grow up to be but at least we know your little one is on the right path – congrats.

  12. That is so kind to allow us as a late entry. Peeps is feeling like 87 gazillion loads of crap but if we can enter something today just let is know at mollyDOTthewallyATbtinternetDOTcom. Nice surgery on Muffin. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  13. Such a sad and happy story!

  14. Poor Mr. Muffin but the little hoomans rescued him and your Mummy put him back together again and he has a whole new life thanks to them…….I think he’s quite cute – how anyone could rip him up and pull out his stuffing is quite sad. I love stories with happy endings though and this is one!!!

    Holiday hugs, Sammy

  15. What horrid children and poor Mr Muffin!

  16. I am so glad that you have such a caring wise and brave family,thank your mummy for treating the giraffe with such care and love and thank the little humon too,xxSpeedy

    Mollie and Alfie
