"The Day The World Sneezed" is a story of hope, helping others, and finding the "light-hearted" moments in the midst of tragedy.
There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, "Father, give me my share of the estate." So he divided his property between them. Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there . . . Wait, wrong story!
There was a man named Elmer who had no sons. The man had a wife, but she died.
After Edith passed, Elmer divided all her Amazon purchases between a barn out back of his farm house and a storage facility in a rural part of America that almost no one ever visits.
Not long after that, a man from the Bureau of Land Management stopped by to ask if Elmer was "stock piling cleaning supplies"--supplies vital to stopping the spread of a really bad "crud" sweeping across America.
Elmer said he was.
The Bureau Man then made Elmer an offer he could refuse, which Elmer did.
Not long after the Bureau Man drove away, Elmer got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there . . . is where the story begins.
If you enjoy light-hearted humor and finding silver linings in clouds, you may enjoy Elmer's efforts to practice the Golden Rule.
