OH MY!!!


Gotta get this going before I start to work replacing what was so carefully constructed over the past week. You see, the boys were here for a little weeks vacation while mom and dad went to Atlantic City, compliments of the in-laws, to gamble the milk money away. Well not really the milk money but to have a good time after 15 months in the City of Sadam and 2 months home at Fort Bragg waiting to go on the well deserved 30 day leave. So ol’ ABNPOPPA and my better half to quote Subvet, “she who must be obeyed”, ABNMOMMA were re-activated to the parental guidance role.

What was once a nice efficient, passive solar house and homestead was transformed by two of the three grandsons in to the Skateboard/bicycle Track of Champions while I was at work performing my super secret government operations, so secret I can’t even tell myself what I do. Zak, and Evan the 11 and 10 year olds without help from any adult or older sibling constructed the park you see in the pictures.

The good news is that after 4 days of riding and boarding in various stages of construction no trips were made to the hospital. ABNMOMMA was pressed into nursing duty for several scraps and abrasions but no broken bones. If you are wondering were the bricks came from if you look at the background you will see a partially dis-mantled flower garden wall. This wall must be rebuilt as the boss said it makes the ranch look trashy. Like the skateboard park is aesthetically appealing?

Oh well, I better get to work, the real boss is due home shortly and if it looks like I did something I might just get dinner.

Grandkids, you gotta love ‘em!!!

Oh ho ho...what a hoot...I bet they had a great time. Glad to hear that no one was seriously hurt. As for the bricks being removed from the garden, that happens to my side garden every time one of the boys works on a vehicle, or the boat, at our house..... :)
