"Let's risk it," said Mrs. De Soto / A tale of two compassionate mice with good heads on their shoulders

Above is a reading of the book Doctor De Soto and below is the animated version of the book. The first video (in English) below is incomplete.  The second one is in Dutch and is complete and worth watching for the animation.  I first heard this story when I watched the English version on a video player last night.  It's a good lesson in the art of combining compassion with self-preservation.

If you don't have time for the above today, here is a very short video of the beauty of summer wind:

that is a robust wind! and through it all, the bird song. I love the views from your porch.

Ha! While Dr De Soto is obviously the good guy, Mrs De Soto is a STAR.

I like the sound of the wind there. We're in the stillness of summer here. No wind and temps soaring.
