  1. Hey! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and
    say I really enjoy reading through your posts.

    topics? Thanks for your time!

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
