101 Dalmatians (1961)

This movie is based on a book by Dodie Smith, which I remember enjoying as a kid. I can’t remember exactly how old I was when I read it, but it was somewhere between Judy Blume and the Hardy Boys.

OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: In the film, Horace and Jasper watch What’s My Crime?  It’s actually a spoof of an old TV show called What’s My Line?  I know because I watched like 20 episodes of it on YouTube late one night in college while putting off homework.

Now I’m going to go out on a limb and say there are probably no avid dog-skinners reading this blog.

Still, whether it’s a dog skin, a nice home, or maybe just a life in general, all of us must be careful not to covet something (or someone) that belongs to another person. A happy and abundant life is not about what we gain, but what we give.

In short, don’t be a Cruella de Vil. After all, she’s only a couple of letters away from being a cruel devil.

Angels see what others need, while devils see only what others have.

Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” – Luke 12:15

    How do you steal a puddle? And why? I mean you can make your own. Just spill some water on the ground.


    Puddle. Job done. Now you don’t need to go stealin’ somebody else’s puddles.
