Out of the mouths of kids ...

Was watching a video the other day with my grandson over here, he's 7 and we have a good time together, he loves to go to lumber yards and machine shops, etc. with me. Also has a great talent for making stuff out of junk from the recycling box, cardboard, plastic, all held together with masking tape. The video was THE GREAT ESCAPE, what a great movie and he loved it. Actually, kids should watch some of that old stuff to see what good movies really are. Anyways, during the movie I noticed his eyes were going shut once in a while. I said to him, "hey, you gettin' sleepy", and he answered in the way only one of the new generation would answer when he said, "nope, my body's just taking a time out". I thought that was pretty funny.

Thanks for sharing that one. No grandkids here
yet. Hoping for some someday! (but my kids have
a little more maturing to do, before they are ready.) Unfortunately, I see a trend where you
can't cut the cord, until they're say, 26, 30?
I think it's dad's pocketbook that keeps them
interested and mom's full refrigerator.

Well Rufus, it's a good sign when kids are always making things for themselves, all great scientists are known to have been like that as kids.

Ah he'll probably turn out to be safe cracker like his grandfather's brother, Rufuso Windrowni. In his youth, Rufuso, besides being the best safeman in Italy, held a high position in the Scilian branch of the Mafia. Later, he came to the U.S. but soon moved to Alberta. In alberta it didn't take long for him to corner the market in canola. With the help of Alberta Mike's cousin, Fergus Dingle, he became the sole source of illegal after-market Avery tractor parts. He was last reported to be headquartered in Rocky Mountain Home, Alberta. Hope this helps.

Thanks a whole bunch EH Jake, I'll be mindfull of any Windrowlinni I encounter out there in the wild wild west when the work's all done next fall. And as an added bonus I have sent 15/ 65cent dollars to Mike to get a seat in the smokin section of the buss, it's a good deal they let me bring the 10/20 and the tadder/pineapple digger in the smokin section too.I feel safe back there with the suitcases and machinery, lest the non smokin/chewin auntey baccer faction gets cousin Fergus to give a little acupuntuer with his 45 to us types up in the seats.Seeya when the bus gets to the UCON.
