A Bright Spot On A Dreary Day

I love to make up stories to tell my grandchildren. They are mostly stream of consciousness type tales, with one word flowing into another effortlessly. In them furniture is allowed to walk and talk. Little girls with red pigtails may hunt for dinosaur bones with their friends. Children can do heroic things. The world is occasionally tested and found to be topsy turvy. My fun is found in my grandbabies eyes, their big-eyed looks of incredulity, their cries for more when the end is pronounced.

I ran across this video today. She might be an author in the making. She sure can tell a story!

Once upon a time... from Capucha on Vimeo.

I've always said there are four words that every child in the world knows, and those are, "Tell me a story,." Don Hewitt


  1. My, what a story teller! I loved it! - Dave

  2. What big beautiful brown eyes she has! And long lucious lashes. I'm jealous. :o))

    She is quite the story teller. It was fun! ♥ ∞

  3. Oh thank you thank you for the big happy smile you just gave me. I'm going to post it on my FB account because I love it so much!


  4. What a wonderful imagination! I was entranced but J'avais peur que le crocodile mangera les bébés.

  5. Oh I know this sweet girl, Steph!
    I know Capucine's great imagination world thru this video. Last night I watched her for 6-times after come across it with another site! Very sweet, very cute.
    As for our postwoman,.. she drives me crazy, am curious if she's on early holidays,lol:)

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
