Sunday Kipling

Tomorrow is a very special day for Lu and I. I'll have a post up about that tomorrow. We spent Saturday at the range helping the shooting club with an Open House that was a rousing success. We had more than 100 new or returning shooters come out for 50 free rounds in a loaner gun, some simple instruction/coaching and just some all around fun. Lu greeted and I coached. I'm loving this place.

We got notice from our real estate agent that the loan process may be done as early as Tuesday and that we might be signing the house over later next week. I'm still trying not to get too comfortable but this is great news. 

We got some nice chicken so a nice early dinner with Sarge and MIL is in order. I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and an even better week. More tomorrow.

A little something light again today. This is another excerpt from Just So Stories.

How The Camel Got His Hump.

       The Camel's hump is an ugly lump
         Which well you may see at the Zoo;
       But uglier yet is the hump we get
         From having too little to do.

       Kiddies and grown-ups too-oo-oo,
       If we haven't enough to do-oo-oo,
             We get the hump --
             Cameelious hump --
       The hump that is black and blue!

       We climb out of bed with a frouzly head,
         And a snarly-yarly voice.                        
       We shiver and scowl and we grunt and we growl
         At our bath and our boots and our toys;

       And there ought to be a corner for me
       (And I know' there is one for you)
             When we get the hump --
             Cameelious hump --
       The hump that is black and blue!

       The cure for this ill is not to sit still,
         Or frowst with a book by the fire;
       But to take a large hoe and a shovel also,
         And dig  till you gently perspire;
       And then you will find that the sun and the wind,
       And the Djinn of the Garden  too,
         Have lifted the hump --   
         The horrible hump --
       The hump that is black and blue!
       I get it as well as you-oo-oo --
         If I haven't enough to do-oo-oo!
         We all get hump --
         Cameelious hump --
       Kiddies and grown-ups too!                
                           How the Camel Got His Hump
