Whether that be writing, painting, drawing, sewing, designing, cooking, floor arrangement, whatever your gift is that people tell you, right, that you have this gift. You just need a moment to sit down and do it. And with this exercise, I'm pulling you away, giving you something you do to take your mind off of whatever for five minutes, right? You don't have to be a writer and participate. So please consider joining. There's no judgment here. It's just a way to kickstart your creativity. All right ?

Our first story comes from Jersey Joe in where else, New Jersey let's celebrate and kiss all of our babies because this world is so freaking weird and crazy. The deep dark waters of society is given a brother all sorts of anxiety. But one thing is for sure, I worried about anybody firing me. It's a blessing and a curse with these sweet living arrangements. You don't want to leave earth. Everything must evolve, especially our babies. So during the maturation process, have a coconut smile and enjoy the show while they develop their individual style. Thank you, Jersey Joe .

And more specifically a review about Jersey Joe. He has been with us since day one. Hasn't missed a week, and I'd like to know what our listeners think about his contribution and creativity. Next we'll hear from anonymous. Okay. It's anonymous. Here we go, baby. Let me tell you how much I love the ocean's water. I embraced the hot sinking sand between my toes. As I trudged my way into the healing salt water, while the sun kisses my skin. Again, I'm not a swimmer. I'm an ocean junkie. I've been this way since I can remember the Jersey shores, where my introduction to one of the many wonders on this planet, just being in the water, felt like a rebirth. Every time I jumped a wave or was flattened by one, I miss being able to drive an hour or a bit more to get the shore and submerse my body into the healing ocean. I wished I lived within a few steps of the ocean. I want to see the waves up close, smell the salt water, feel the cool breeze in the evenings. Sink my toes in the wet, heavy sand in the mornings and see little guppies fluttering around my ankles. Destined Florida. I hear good things about your sand and ocean. Maybe it's time for me to schedule a self love retreat. Thank you. Anonymous in New Jersey and last but not least yours, truly, you know, every now and then I might write something because really it's all about you. But you know, I like the words this week. So here we go. Extra, extra, read all about it. The baby who tried to kiss a starfish, fell in the water and was saved by a dolphin at the bunkers zoo. The parents had turned their backs for a split second to buy some peanuts to feed the elephant . That's when baby curious, a 10 month old decided to take her first steps after being mesmerized by the colorful starfish, sitting at the bottom of the dolphins pool, baby curious, stood up, took two wobbly steps, leaned on the guardrail and fell into the dolphin pool. All lookers gassed, loudly and froze and shock punks dads spun around to see what was happening and immediately took off his shoes and jumped over the rail. He was about to jump into the dolphin pool, but stopped when he saw baby curious emerge from the water coughing, then smiling while riding on the back of mama dolphin, there was a collective sigh of relief by the crowd, along with a few loud, off sirens.
