~ As I told Strong man I was going to take a bath Man of the woods said, "In the bath tub? Oh Momma you're going to love it!" Laughter said he would get it ready for me, but when I pointed out that he would get his clothes wet he said, "That's okay Mommy I'll just take them off and take a bath with you."...Umm I don't think so, but thanks anyway.
