Pete the Softy

I come across as very grumpy at times, I know. I moan about the weather, complain about bogus comments and followers, as well as griping about problems around the house.

I am known for writing stories with dark themes or unhappy endings, and my outlook on life is often very pessimistic.

But the truth is, I am a big softy. When I am not writing horror serials, I sit around watching things like this 12-minute film.

A baby pig, and small calf. Rescued from an uncertain fate and taken to a happy life in a countryside sanctuary.

Proof that so many people have good hearts, and animals deserve better than we normally give them.

I can think of a lot worse ways to spend 12 minutes of my life.

  1. Dear Pete, yes you are a softy. You do complain about the weather and gripe about problems and comments, but those who know you well can read between the lines. You are one of the kindest people I know. Of course you loved the pig and calf video. I did too. Best to you, and thank you.

  2. Your complaints are pretty mild, Pete. It’s not like you have been throwing things off the shelves when somebody asks you to wear a mask. You also demonstrate proper etiquette in your responses to your fellow bloggers, and that further reveals your character. I think the fact that some of us (myself included) like to tease you occasionally shows that we know it’s nothing more than a guy sometimes blowing off a little steam. Thanks for the delightful video.

  3. Aww, this is so sweet Pete. You are like a soft boogeymanπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Complaining is cute when it’s you doing it. I enjoy your blog and learn a lot about how people face difficulties and I like it when you talk about it. I haven’t been out of my house and life so I don’t know what the real world is like but you teach me that in your blog. Just keep going. I like it when you talk about everything in life.

    Not all stories should have a happy ending.πŸ€—πŸ’–βœŒπŸ˜Š
