Aesop's Fable Friday.
A Farmer, being at death's door, and desiring to impart to his Sons a secret of much importance, called them round him and said, "My Sons, I am shortly about to die; I would have you know, therefore, that in my vineyard there lies a hidden treasure. Dig, and you will find it."
As soon as their father was dead, the Sons took spade and fork and turned up the soil of the vineyard over and over again, in their search for the treasure which they supposed to lie buried there. They found none; however the vines, after so thorough a digging, produced a crop such as had never before been seen.
Moral of the story: More treasure than gold can be found beneath the sun.
School's out!! Hurray! The girls worked hard this year and did a beautiful job. Grizzly Mama needs a bit of a rest too. I am looking forward to some fun in the sun. Next up will be a look at Cubed's next essay in her excellent series on Education and Jihad. So - gird your loins (as they say..) and get ready for her fearless look at the ugly truth. We must be brave. We will be brave together.
