      I always enjoy a little word play. :) Gallagher always came up with some pretty good ones; "Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?" was a personal favorite. "Why do we call them buildings when they're already built?" was another.

      Great hub. Thanks for the smiles.

      Hello there Mrs. Strictly. My wife read your comment about how it is an even trade growing the baby and she agreed with you and I do too. An update to that hub is that we moved to a bigger home one that she feels more comfortable in not my old bachelor flat and is now taking ownership and doing all kinds of things so that is a great thing. Thank you for your comment. I appreciated it alot
