Here they are in the backyard, with May holding the dog leash and Irene being the doggie. Janie is skirting imagined Killer Beetles. Love it.
Chris said, "If we only had a typewriter stand."
Which really made me laugh!!!!!
When I was in about 4th grade and my sister was in about 1st grade, I tied one end of my jumprope to my Mother's extremely rickity typewriter table, and the other end of the jumprope to my bike. I then convinced my little sister to ride on the typewriter stand while I rode the bike fast and furious around and around our home's cul-de-sac. I had GREAT FUN! My sister was (I believe) scared stiff. My Mother opened her bedroom window and yelled at me to stop. When we went in the house, my Mother hugged my sister tight and gave me a good talking to.
