Title: " Jack, The Giant And The Beanstalk"

Comment: I always had a different take on fairy tales than most of my friends.
Take "Jack in the Beanstalk" for example.
The way I see it the old giant .after a hard working life
, has accrued a few things to amuse him in his retirement. He just wants to kick back and listen to some tunes on his harp and have a few golden goose eggs. He has socked away a few sheckles and likes to count them before bed ( instead of sheep ). While he is very large he is no mental giant. You have to suppose that he had to work at some manual labor and is just about worn out.
Then along comes Jack. This kid doesn't know a cow from beans so he decides to become a criminal. He steals the old Ogre blind and ends up murdering him in the end. Does he get a lengthy prison sentence? No!! He gets a heroes welcome and becomes rich. Great lesson to teach little kids.

Yes, the giant is really Chartreuse (ala Shrek). Jack is the stopper and is carrying off the goose that laid the golden egg. The beanstalk handle has leaves that were made by presing some of my bean leaves in the wet clay. No, they're not "Magic Beans" but they are Kentucky WONDERS.
