Give a guy a noisy machine and off he goes!
The story goes like this:
Chris yells, “I am going to be gone for a little bit!” and I hear the front door slam shut.
Flash forward an hour and half later, Chris comes breezing in the front door like an excited puppy,
“Get your camera ready and come to the yard in a little bit!!!”
Next thing I hear is lots of noise. Its Chris with a leaf blower strapped to his back, and I have no idea where it came from.
Me, yelling above the noise, “Where’d that come from!”
Chris, yelling above the noise, with big grin on face and sparkle in those blue, blue eyes,
“I got it from Kevin, I went over to talk with him and came back with this, isn’t it great!”
Yeah, Chris, another noisy toy is just GREAT!
When I was a kid, we used rakes and a big push cart thing with brushes that rotated around. The only noise involved was our grunts behind the pushcart thing, it wasn’t easy to push around the yard!
PS: If you click on the middle pix to biggie-size, you’ll see Kevin’s reddish brown house beyond the walnut tree.
