If money were no object, here is what I would gift to you #letsblogoff

First, I would buy health care for everyone who was willing to take care of themselves. If you don’t have health, you have nothing. Then I would buy an education for everyone willing to learn. Educated people influence others around them to want to learn. Lastly, I would buy a home for anyone who is homeless and wanted one. Everyone should have some place to call home.

Then I would figure out how to save time in a bottle and give it to all the writers and artists who left works unfinished. The world is a poorer place without artists and the art they create. Most often, they just need more time.

And I would create bottles of compassion, wisdom and patience to give freely to those who need each. Because there is no such thing as a self-made man and those who think they are need to be reminded from time to time.

Happy Holidays from Rufus, Sallie, Charlie and our intern Zoey. We wish you and yours lots of cold noses and many long, pointless walks.

This blog post is part of a blog-off series with a group of bloggers from different professions and world views, each exploring a theme from his/her world view. This was about β€œif money were no object, what would you gift.” To explore how others handled the theme, check them out below. I will add links as they publish.

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

  1. Thanks for the bottle of time – and Happy Holidays to all of you as well

    P.S. just try to keep the cat away from the catnip unless you are looking for a wild New Years party

    Ahh!! I forgot to give an unlimited budget to the cat for the New Year’s Eve party πŸ™‚

    I was going to say shoes but I like your answer better. ; ) Also I need extra bottles of compassion, wisdom and patience. I hope you accept groupons.

  5. Betsy says:

    I’ll take a bottle of patience, please. πŸ˜‰

    Green Apple flavored patience? When you drink a Jones Green Apple soda, your whole world slows right down @jonessodaco

    HA! Whenever I hear Groupon, I think of that Ron White bit about “coupons” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ovk4JNw3hAk

  8. Joseph says:

    Ah, yes, time in a bottle! The one gift that never stops giving!

  9. I’m with Betsy- patience is what I need extra bottles of! Good stuff!

  10. I’ll take a case of Time! And a few pints of Wisdom to keep me grounded – I have a feeling this is going to be one crazy holiday vacation if time becomes unlimited.

  11. Rufus says:

    I could live with the holidays being extra long. I love Christmas, so many shiny things and people aren’t quite as mean-spirited. Well, most of them anyway πŸ™‚

    Working on it … patience.. Ironic you would learn patience waiting for a bottle of patience. While you wait, I prescribe a cold bottle of Jones Green Apple Soda… or any flavor; they are all delicious. But only in glass, not the canned or plastic bottles. http://www.jonessoda.com/
