Kids eh!



"Look Ollie, what I'll do is tie this end to a branch, you sit in the chair, and we'll see if it holds".

"Is is holding Harv?"

"Sort of".

"Tell me if it looks like breaking".

"OK".

The rest is history, and probably best forgotten.

  1. That photo reminded me of the tree house at the Hearne's place. Presume no serious damage was done.

  2. Well, it stayed up long enough for the photo to be snapped.

    1. I think they named it 'The Floating Chair'. I would have called it something different.

    1. They're both obsessed by FIRE (what boys aren't), which is my biggest worry.

  9. Do we get to hear the end of the story or do we have to draw our own conclusions?

  10. Ha ha this brought back memories and of course fears of our two boys and the daredevil stunts they pulled daily. We are so happy they made it to adulthood. We just chuckle with delight when one of their children pull the same stunts. It is called payback.

  11. Wonderful to have a quick Sunday catch up of what's been going on in your neighborhood. Congrats on the garden bounty, and on having these energetic, rambunctious, creative grandsons. Bok's pal Marley reminds me of a beautiful dog who was part of the next door neighbor's family back in my childhood.
    I'm not writing too much, because I want to keep hopping amongst blogs...like bees I have recently observed visiting flowers over in Central Park. xo
