This story was sent by a friend by e-mail. I haven’t included all the photos, the story speaks for itself through pictures, until the end. Having written about kindness recently, I thought this one should get a mention. Sorry about the layout, I couldn’t get the punch line below the pictures….. Had to remove some of the pictures too as I couldn’t get them in sequence… sorry!
A German TOURIST JUMPED INTO THE FREEZING WATER AND SAVED MY PRECIOUS LITTLE DOG.
UPON GETTING BACK ONTO THE BRIDGE, HE CHECKED MY PUPPIE OUT AND TOLD ME,
“ZE DOG IS OK. HE VILL BE FINE.”
Due to his selfless heroic act, I ASKED, “ARE YOU A VET?”
“VET? I’M FUCKING SOAKED!”
Dixie Minor’s Y/A book, ‘Winter Dream’, is set in the shadow of the north Georgia Mountains. The culture of a country town is reflected through the eyes of 18-year-old Jessie.
The loss of her mother at an early age permeates the story that encapsulates the uncertainties of youth.
Turmoil and dangers disrupt this peaceful town; combined with boy friend issues; suspense is maintained.
Jessie’s maturation is shown with her realization that she is not responsible for other people’s problems and happiness.
This book retains wholesome family values, without resorting to horror and terror. A welcome gift for any teenager. Dixie Minor is a fellow blogger and can be found at: http://www.dixieminor.wordpress.com
