The Set is Mine... See ya mister....

I have been spending more and more time with parents and children as the season progresses.   With every new set I have new freinds,  and loose them fairly quick...

 Every year as the season comes into full swing.   I meet some of the most interesting characters you can Imagine..  I am referring to the children of course..    This Saturday I built a playhouse for the most lovely family in Seattle......  As I worked feverishly to get the set built for the little guy.  He had his watchful eyes on me the whole time...  I was asked several times through out the day what was I doing with that and why do I do like that...  What is that noise I keep hearing?  Hey Sam can I  get my tools and help?  I have plastic hammers and a plastic shovel..  I know I can do it!!!!.  Hey Sam watch this!  Are you done yet?  When are going to put my slide on?  You are a good house maker sam!  This continued on for the day.  I patiently answered his questions and helped with his projects of his own.. 

  He would nudge ever so close now and then.   I would remind him we had an arrangement that he made first thing in the morning about his line he could not cross... He would apologize and remember the deal...   As the day came to an end and I was completed with his house..   I asked for his approval,  and he excepted it with open arms.. It was his playhouse......all HIS...  He had waited out in the rain with me, watching, supervising so well...  The time was right for him to make it his own... go up and down the slide.  use the Rock wall.... Go in and out of the house..  This went on for a while as I cleaned my tools up and removed some debris from the yard..  The time had come for me to remove a few things from the set........... He promptly told me,  I was past my line and we had an arrangement...  

Well I guess I am not welcome any more......   Makes me laugh....   I think I will make a sign and send it to him...   No Sam Allowed...   I guess its fair... 

Its funny how they hang on every word,,,,, untill I am done...

Sam
