Hugging - one a day highly recommended, more would be good!

The Hug

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees.
Inflation proof, non-taxable.
In fact, it's quite relaxable.

It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.

Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorates your happiness.
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self esteem!
Your circulation it corrects,
Without unpleasant side effects.

It is, I think, the perfect drug,
May I prescribe, my friend....
The Hug!
(and, of course, fully returnable)

  19. Precious pictures, Denise! That first one of those two sweet little bunnies reminded me of finding a bunny like that in my yard when I was trying to dig a garden in Texas (I never had any success--the grasshoppers were too overwhelming!) Anyway, I stopped digging up the weeds and put a fence around him with a wooden cover on it. He could get out, but I thought it might help him stay safe. One day I heard an awful racket and a crow was trying to attack the bunny. I ran outside and the poor little thing ran straight for me (by accident, of course!) and I scooped him up and held him close and chased the crow away! I would later see he and his mommy bunny at night hopping all over the yard! But she moved him soon after, and I hope he made it! It was a delightful experience!
