To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Sam's World

He can be so funny, this boy of mine. Like most boys he is easily amused with bodily functions and such but with four sisters he has no choice but to reign in it sometimes. They guard him jealously from all that they perceive to be inappropriate...walking through a store and passing by the lingerie section will usually cause momentary blindness as his sisters slap hands over his eyes or forcibly turn his head around.
So this morning we all had a really good laugh over the name of this bird...

It is a blue footed booby. Sam, well aware that some words just aren't acceptable to use in polite company...wink, wink...calls it a blue footed ba-boy.
He's so funny.

LOL I love your family and you make me smile. I like his blue feet and I think it is kind of your son to give him a more appropriate name.:)
