Chicken Or The Churchill

Everyone always says that new babies look like Winston Churchill. I wish they talked like him, so funny!

Lady Astor: Winston, if I were your wife I'd put poison in your coffee
Churchill: Nancy, if I were your husband I'd drink it!

Baby looking like Churchill: The photograph above was taken by my mom on the night she met her grandson. Avery is about 4 days old in this picture and is in my mom's lap. Recently he has started to open his eyes more, but in general there has been a lot of sleeping in these early days. Not that Mike and Aimee get to do a lot of sleeping because he still needs to be fed and changed all the time. But basically between those activities he isn't usually awake, he just passes back out - looking like Winston Churchill.

The thing is, babies don't look any different now than they did hundreds of years ago. So I don't think that it is actually accurate to say that babies look like a British Prime Minister from the mid-twentieth century; it is more accurate to say that Winston Churchill looked like a baby. I wonder if people said/thought that at the time.

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.

I may be drunk Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.

If you are going through hell, keep going. 

 The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
