Mother's Lesson #7


These are the young men of our family. Handsome fellows aren’t they. They have the capacity to eat twice their weight in junk food, buttons, and tin cans.


This is a bottle of “Seabuck 7.”

It is made from seabuckthorn berries. The ancient Chinese and the nice lady at Nugget Market said seabuckthorn berries will:

  • Rejuvenate my body and mind
  • Enhance my immune activity
  • Support my circulation and a healthy cardiovascular system for me
  • Fight free radicals found in my body
  • Contribute to healthy cell membranes and smooth, glowing skin

I believed them. I paid $30 for a month’s supply.

Seabuck 7 requires refrigeration. There-in lies the rub. Remember the handsome young men above. Seabuck 7 would have been an aperitif for them.

I had to protect it.

So I made a new label.


It was really scary. The young men ran away.

Don't forget Shaquanda Cotton!

Nofearingchange and Karrie,

It worked for the older guys--for a while. The little guy did not have a clue--but that's what big cousins are for.

I sure do love when people post pictures of their family. Takes away some of the distance, anonymity. Good looking bunch too, I bet you had your hands full.

Thanks. I think they're kinda cute that's why I tend to be a big softee. I still have my hands full.
