"Humps"

Last night the kids and I huddled up at home together. George is miserably sick. He has bronchitis, but it sounded bad enough that Dr. M. took an x-ray of his chest to confirm that there was no pneumonia. Luckily, it was just bronchitis. But, he is running a hefty fever and just isn't himself. He even fell asleep on my chest - and he never does that. Poor, sweet baby.



While I cuddled George, we all watched Ariel's Beginning - a surprisingly good movie for a sequel. As we were watching, Luke looked at me seriously and said, "Mom, those are mermaids. And, and, the difference between a mermaid and a human is, is that mermaids have, um, shells on their humps and. . . and . . . and a fish tail instead of legs." I was patiently listening to his lesson on mermaids, but I got lost when he mentioned shells on their humps. I wasn't really sure what he was talking about, but when I saw him motion to the "humps" where the shells were, I figured it out and had to bite my tongue with laughter.



He is right. I can't argue with him.

Poor George - I hope he gets better soon. I love that is what Luke calls them. Alexa used to call them pillows.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to choose a proper partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
