A Reminder

Lots of wee folk about today.  Some toys just never lose interest. This marble run is probably twenty years old and has been played with for much of these years.
 Sprinkling cornstarch doesn't seem to lose its allure either.  Interestingly, the mosquitos have been dreadful. No one coated in powder got a bite this noon.

 Giddy-up needed to take his "hangs" to the tree fort for a picnic.

 He was so happy to have Pappy join him.  As we walked down from the fort he said, "Pappy made this tree fort."  "I love it."

 Late afternoon brought the worse kind of news.  Handy Man's nephew was killed in an automobile accident very early this morning. He was 26.  What can you even say about such a tragedy.  A reminder to soak up all that sweetness, each moment that you have.  Please keep his family in your prayers.
