  8. Cos Simon sells sea shells by the seashore.
    The shells Simon sells are surely seashells.
    So if Simon sells shells on the seashore,
    I'm sure Simon sells seashore shells?


    Phew! What a swelly welly day...

    Sighh.

  14. Ooooo!=] My windows have been full of the site of our twenty five foot sailboat being prepared to be towed up to and launched for a few days of sailing up at Lake Champlain! Perfecto!!!

    I can't wait to show this to my husband and boys over coffee in a few hours. (middle of the night - back to bed I go - see you in the mornin'!)
