Did Moses Need A Chemist?

No, But He's Famous For Taking Two Tablets

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON

When our son was little, I used to read him a story every night from his children's version of the Bible. So when we explored a bush property one day, I was delighted to see bulrushes by the side of a lake. I called him over and said: ``Do you remember the story of Moses?''

He said he did.

``Remember it was about the baby in the bul .....'' I said, trying to prompt his memory.

He was trying valiantly to recall the answer.

I tried again. ``Moses and the bul ....''

His face lit up. ``Moses and the bulldozers?''

David - I award you first prize for the oldest 'M' - Moses is a masterstroke! :)

My children had a very well worn children's bible, I still keep it. Lovely memories.

good daddy. i'm sure that whether all the details of the stories sunk in or not, the memories made with your son during your nightly bible readings are a thing to be treasured.
