In other news, Abe has made me a very happy woman this week. Not that that is so unusual. I consider myself very fortunate to be married to Abe and I am regularly very happy with him, but this week he started exercising with me! Hooray!!! He walked with me a couple of times and he ran with me as well. I've got the endurance and can go for a long time, but for shorter distances he is faster than me so I had to hustle to keep up with him.
Elinor is a thinker. Sometimes I fear she may think too much as evidenced by two of her recent questions too me.
"Mom, if you found out I was a mermaid, would you turn me into the scientists?"
(No, I wouldn't tell anyone and I would protect you from the scientists.)
"Mom, do you think I have any fifth cousins that are suffering from cancer?"
(Sadly, you probably do, but I don't know who they are).
Where does she come up with this stuff?
