Joseph Dreams (Genesis 37)
D=Don, R=Ronnie (or Rosey puppet or person
D. Hi Ronnie! Great to see you again.
R. It's great to be back! I've missed seeing all my friends and family.
D. What have you been doing at home then?
R. I've been working on my photo album from my last trip back in January when we went to Tasmania ( or holiday place). I went on a plane for the first time and it was 'so..o' cool. We flew 'Puppet Air'. Dad pulled a few strings.
D. Did you go to visit family down there?
R. Oh yes, we stayed with my cousins Rontella, Ronando, Rondo, Ronto, Roneil my Aunty Ronetta and uncle Bob.
D. That's a lot of Rons. Did you have a fun catching up?
R. Yes, mostly. We went out each day to see things and played games in the evening. One night we had a 'mega' argument while playing the board game "Sorry".
D. Oh dear!
R. It ended up with Ronando ( who's nine) tipping the board over with lot's of yelling and throwing cards. We were banned from playing for the next two nights.
D. So not sorry then? Did it end up Ok?
R. Oh yeah, we had a really good time and I've got some great photos to show you next time.
D. Well you've reminded me this morning (whenever..) about another big family like yours.
R. This is from the Bible right?
D. How did you guess?
R. I'm getting the hang of your stories. Next, your going to tell me that this family went on an aeroplane and played "Sorry".
D. No, not exactly..the flight to Egypt came later. I'm going to tell you about a guy called Joseph who had eleven brothers and these brothers got very annoyed with him...
R. 'Cause he burped at the dinner table?
D. No, because they thought Joseph was their dad's favourite and he also told his bros. about some special dreams he had.
R. So was Joseph a good guy or a bad guy?
D. Good question...
R. or a bad question?
D. Well, it's hard to say...
R. You can do it..
D. I think Joseph was a bit of a 'show off' at first but then he had some really bad stuff happen to him and God looked after him and used Joseph to help lot's of other people.
R. And this is all in the Bible right?
D. Oh yes, and there's a lot more to this Joseph story . Wait till we get to the part about the strange cows!
R. Strange cows? What about horses... or fluffy sheep?
Maybe you could tell me some more next time cause now I've got to get going...What do you call a sheep with no legs?
D. I don't know... Shaun?
R. No. A cloud!
D. Bye Ronnie. See you soon.
