"The Precious Cow" is a little-known fable from Africa about the importance of valuing strong family ties above material wealth.  As we point out, it offers a bit of a twist to the "rule of three", a common characteristic of many popular folktales.

We come to you from Chapel Hill, NC, having just completed a return engagement at the High Point Library. Among our audiences there were some regular podcast listeners, the delightful Singleton family, so we decided to let them say howdy on the next podcast – namely, this one.

We also discuss our adventures climbing Pilot Mountain in North Carolina, and zip lining in North Carolina and Arkansas.

Happy Listening,
Dennis (Father, Oldest Son, Middle Son) and Kimberly (Narrator, Youngest Son, Cow)
