Dyno the DynoSawRus

Dyno the DynoSawRus was having a bad hair day well at least he was struggling to get some sticky toffee pudding off his face and feet. He had been hanging around Murphy’s cafe in the hope of some treat when one rather large sticky toffee pudding sailed through the air and landed on Dyno’s head then flopped with a ‘splodge’ onto his feet. Being rather fond of sticky toffee pudding he did not wish to waste it but he also was well aware that he had a responsibility. “Murphy man and Murphy mum are argyfying again,” he thought, so he settled down to clean himself while giving some carefull thought as to how he might resolve their problem.
You see he knew what their problem was, it was that Murphy man and Murphy mum both had terribly bad tempers. When they got that way Murphy mum started throwing things and Murphy man went into hiding. Now you may think that hiding is sensible and it would be but for the cafe… he is the cook there and the customers get very hungry when he hides. Once he hid for a whole day and everyone had rumble tummies until he came out of his hiding place and cooked for them.
After ten minutes of cleaning his fur rather like cats clean theirs, Dyno had a plan in mind. First he sent a message to Murphy mum asking her to deliver some groceries. That got her out of the cafe and Murphy man had hid so Dyno was able to let the customers know his plan. They were all delighted and ready to help, Miss Daisy Dolly returned to her flower shop, Mister Bloomer the baker went to his bakery, Jolly Jingle was soon practicing his fiddle and everyone was ready to party. Dyno knew where the hiding place was so off he went with a little bunch of herbs, I wonder are you going to guess the kind he took?
Dyno recalled his friends saying that they planted the herb together and it was special to them. At the hiding place he said not a word just held out the herb. Murphy man was so delighted he grabbed the herb and ran all the way back to the cafe. What did he find there? Murphy mum putting flowers in a big vase with a little one beside it and in it was the herb. They didn’t care that everyone was watching they just gave each other a big smile and an even bigger hug. Jolly jingle started playing his fiddle and everyone put parcels on the counter before dancing began. Dyno watched and waited.
When jolly jingle was getting thirsty he stopped playing and then people began to talk. Murphy Mum asked Murphy Man about the flowers how had he known she liked those particular flowers as she never told anyone [or had she?] Murphy Man said he didn’t then stopped in the middle of his sentence. Together they said “DYNO” then they asked about the parcels and how did jolly jingle come today with his fiddle and for a while everyone spoke together.
After a while when everyone had gone quiet Dyno was asked to explain. This is what he said. “Getting angry and throwing things at people is very naughty and so is running away and letting friends go hungry.” Murphy man and Murphy mum looked sad. They both told Dyno and everyone how very sorry they were. Then Dyno continued. “It really is ever so good saying sorry now but you must try to stop being angry. When we say sorry it is best to remember we are saying we will try to be good in future.”
Murphy man and Murphy mum said they were truly sorry and would cook for everyone just as Mister Bloomer the baker came in with a basket of buns to share out. “Not tonight” he said and suddenly there were people helping out at the counter for in the parcels they had food. Everyone had brought something tasty to share. Dyno decided his work was finished and he crept out. His friends had learned their lesson and they stopped all their arguments from that day.
Now then, do you remember that herb they had planted? The one that Dyno offered Murphy man and Miss Daisy Dolly had put with the flowers for Murphy mum. Can you guess the name? It is a girl’s name; rosemary and when we give it to someone we are asking them to remember something very special.
