Love Story: Wooed by wanderer

Hello everybody.

After having few weeks of heat-wave, the rain brought our way some chilly days. Temperature dropped significantly. We reached out for sweaters.

The one thing I recommend reaching-out this morning
is this love story
(money is not everything, you'll see)

Such a joy.. but, I do feel sorry for the trees.

Now; in this story, we came across a subject that truly irritates me: swindlers. Even today, in this (so called "modern") age, we are dealing with false pretenses. People go from house to house, and pretend they are collecting money "for the greater good". Fake charity approaches occur all year round and often take the form of a response to real disasters or emergencies, such as floods, cyclones, earthquakes and bushfires. Scammers will pose as either agents of legitimate well-known charities or create their own charity name. This can include charities that conduct medical research or support disease sufferers and their families. Scammers may also play on your emotions by claiming to help children who are ill. 
Using something as serious as an illness or using  false story about abandoned children, that is as low as one can go. 
Still, giving a donation is the kindest deed one can do for those who really need it.

Have a nice Sunday


  1. Hmm, Mother Nature sure is in a defiant mood this summer, isn't she? For about three months now, we've had rain more days than not and as such, it doesn't really feel like we're into summertime proper yet. I suspect (though do hope that otherwise proves to be the case) that we're enter autumn without ever having felt like we got a "real" summer. Oh well, the weather is the weather no matter where one lives, and all we can do is ride out the storm (sometimes quite literally! :D).

    Wishing you a beautiful Sunday and the speedy return of sunshine, my dear friend,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. I think we've got your heatwave - we've finally got some warm weather. I'm hoping it will do my tomatoes some good.

    Most of my charity donations are regular donations, direct to the charities. I don't often give to random people collecting.
