Life is Often Too Seriously Taken, so for that reason, I'm going to post a silly poem from time-to-time. These first several will each be taken from a small booklet entitled, Lighten Up! 100 Funny Little Poems, compiled and edited by Bruce Lansky.

So beautiful! I have a very precious grandson who just turned 18 and has had his ear removed 3 times and put back due to a tumor growing in his ear and resulting hearing damage. The go in a scoop out scar tissue and he has gotten back a small part of his hearing. These children are remarkable for their courage and bravery. This young girl (in your photo story) is just stunning, so precious.

Hi Judy, Your son must be also remarkable for his courage and stamina. (And his parents!) :-) Thank you so much for visiting here.

We can learn a lot from children! How wonderful that this doctor can create an almost perfect ear for the little girl. I knew once an adult woman who had no ears. She was too old for such an operation.
Thanks for your visit and comment.
