My lullabies stand out

After my wife and I kept the grandbaby all weekend long, I realized that I still know how to change a diaper, I still know how to hold a baby, I still know how to feed a baby, and I still know that 2-month-old babies still have no appreciation for beef jerky.

An awful lot of folks have said that if Donald Trump wins the presidential election in November, they are moving to Canada.
