It's Year of the Rabbit

I did some weeding in my garden with my youngest son a few days ago.

Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Son: Be a nonsense?

Me: Great! You can be a great nonsense only if you start talking great nonsense from now on.

Son: We should not remove these weeds. They have their room in the Nature.

Me: We are helping them to reborn earlier, maybe, as a man.

Son: Maybe as a blogger.

Son: So many spiders stay in our garden for free.

Me: They share the same address with us.

Son: Let's check the letterbox. There may be new year cards for them.

Me: A butterfly just flew pass us.

Son: In a jerking manner.

Me: Why?

Son: It laughed because it overheard all this nonsense.

Me: It must be one of the three Stooges.

Son: Who are they?

Me: Someone like Mr. Bean. We have to be smart, but they earned a living by doing nonsense everyday.

Son: Is it the reason I have been talking so much nonsense and never get scolded for the first time?

(I wish everyone of you a Happy Chinese New Year).

Beautiful Chinese lanterns. Almost all my physicians are Chinese and so is my wonderful dentist ( and, also, his wife who is a dentist ). I was just at their office last week and it was so beutifully decorated fo Chinese New Year - even the bathroom. I almost stayed in there!!
