If you can start the daywithout caffeine or pep pills,If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,If you can resist complainingand boring people with your troubles,If you can eat the same foodevery day and be grateful for it,If you can understandwhen loved ones are too busy to give you time,If you can overlookwhen people take things out on you when,through no fault of yours,something goes wrong,If you can takecriticism and blame without resentment,If you can face the world without lies and deceit,If you can conquer tension without medical help,If you can relax without liquor,If you can sleep without the aid of drugs…If you can do all these things,Then you are probably the family dog.

and I were in New Orleans for our tenth weddinganniversary on Jan. 27th, 2011. I had brought along a copyof the Humm to read on the plane. So for fun he took apicture of me in front of General Andrew Jackson’s statuein Jackson Square, which dates back to 1721. We had awonderful anniversary honeymoon in the French quarter.Would highly recommend it for anyone’s Top 10 places tovisit before you die. The food was awesome and BourbonStreet a blast.
Thanks for taking theHumm on yout travels!

It took e  oent to recognize the signicnceo Hilton’s “LVOH” signture on her works,until I reclled tht she is the dughter o Frncnd Sylvi vn Oort. Frnc’s reuttion s  su-erb rtist nd rintker is widely known, butI hdn’t known tht Lind’s other hs her ownwebsite too.
