Childhood Stories which stayed in our memory

Ok guys, we all heard or read stories when we were small/younger which have a special place in our memory box

PLEASE SHARE a stroy or rhyme from your childhood...maybe like me, it's one with a good moral

for me, 2 pieces stand the test of time...first it was the rhyme (Perseverance/ try again) my Nana taught me and which i recited in std one.

the 2nd is a story one that i tell often to many children and today i told it with coworkers in reference to djt

Rhyme

Drive the nail aright, boys,
Hit it on the head;
Strike with all your might, boys,
While the iron's red.

When you've work to do, boys,
Do it with a will;
They who reach the top, boys,
First must climb the hill.

Standing at the foot, boys,
Gazing at the sky,
How can you get up, boys,
If you never try?

Though you stumble oft, boys,
Never be downcast;
Try, and try again, boys,
You'll succeed at last

 

Original Post

This is my favourite story of all time...it was told to me by my Nana as a young child (prior to my 9th birthday, i know this because we moved away from his home then) and  i may have later read it myself

of course my Nana told me a diff version...it was a bird that the woman fed who granted the wishes and she lived in a vinegar barrel or jug

Please read it...it could be relevant to djt not to wish bad upon anyone...

Many stories I had to read. Many poems I had to memorize. I vaguely remember them all. Perhaps, soon as I realized, it wasn't necessary for me to remember it . Almost, on all I have to press my memory to remember the names, muchless the contents. All I remember from "Chicken Little", was the concerns of the sky falling down. The rest of story juss gone.

As Sparrow chimed, "the English man was unbelievale, he had a cow jumping over the moon."

Willi willi winkle. And little boy blue. Cause my mother use to recite those to me lots of time when i was small

po bie had a wee lillie winkie and dem mek poem about him

 

Wee Willie Winkie rhyme poem

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Tapping at the window and crying through the lock,
Are all the children in their beds, it's past eight o'clock?

------------------------

Little Boy Blue

 

Little boy blue,
Come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow,
The cow's in the corn.
But where is the boy
Who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haystack,
Fast asleep.

 

i was hoping that you guys remember a story from childhood and what it meant

the story of the woman in the vinegar jug is about greed vs contentment

i had a friend who lived in a nice apt and was able to move to nice 4 bdrm house  where they lived for a few yrs...then she wanted a bigger house with bigger patio, so they had a custom built house made beside friends....few yrs passed and she wanted a much bigger house with 5 bdrm, walk out basement and 5 baths...sadly, she moved there and six mths later.....sadly, she was unable to enjoy that mansion

(which is why i still live in my "chicken coop" )

GNI is a porn site now?  

If you say so, let me repent by sharing a Hindu prayer I learnt as a child:

Ram naam ladoo

Gopal naam ghee

Krishna naam kheer khand

Gholi gholi pee….

You better start repenting now by chanting  "om bur burwah swaha" .....

Looks like this rank Gilbakka contaminated Chameli's thread. I wonder what penance awaits me.

You Sir MUST be punished!

your punishment is to post threads on social that are funny, educational or of interest to the average people not the highly intellectuals who post on political only

Your penance:  spice up GNI. Start another quiz thread like the 100-page one we had. Political Forum is boring with the same stuff being rehashed -- PPP, PNC and Trump. Let's revive Social back to its past glory.

But Queenie, yuh wasn't in dat LEMME TICKLE ALLYOU BRAIN posse. Django, Riya, Mars, even Warria, and a special young lady were the brains that kept the thread up for so long.
