RUSSELL’S DADDY RAT© 1988 by Glinda Bowman

Now what I’m going to tell you is a true story, it’s about a black man that don’t get much glory.  He found out you never take more than you need, and he learned a lesson from his one day of greed.

Daddy Rat was an old man; he was jet black, he lived his life in a little one-room shack. He had an old dog, he was a good retriever, and that old dog made Daddy Rat a true believer.

Listen to a fish tale I heard a long time ago, it all happened on the creek at the Deuley Hole.  Here would sit old Daddy Rat and my uncle Joe, Daddy Rat would fish while uncle Joe’d play banjo.

Well, Daddy Rat would fish but he couldn’t catch enough, he would think of ways to fill his fryin pan up.  He threw a stick of dynamite out in the crick, and sat back in horror as his dog did his trick.

Daddy Rat, he don’t know what’s to think about all that.  You better put this story under your hat, it was a good lesson to be learned, you don’t get nothin you don’t earn.

Well Daddy Rat got up real fast from where he sat, and he took off a runnin like a wild polecat.  That dynamite blew up old Daddy Rat’s poor dog; it can only mean he’s not too smart after all.

Well my uncle Joe would tell that story with a grin, how Daddy Rat’s greed just about did him in.  After that, Daddy Rat would fish and be content, to sit back and wonder where his old dog went.

Daddy Rat, he don’t know what’s to think about all that.  You better put this story under your hat, it was a good lesson to be learned, you don’t get nothin you don’t earn.

    JOHN BOWMAN is a little vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news titles to get people to open the
    links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people interested

  43. First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

  44. Excellent article. I will be going through some of these issues as well..
