Child labor

June is one of those perfect months.
The weather here is perfect. It is warm but not too hot, and cool enough for
windows to be wide open. Just the way I like it.
The moon last night was on full-blast, and I was in heaven all wrapped up like
Marley's ghost in my big feather bed with Mr. Nielson.
I begged him to tickle my back to sleep, and he did.
I can't much think of a better equation:
Full moon + feather bed + open windows + Mr. Nielson +
Mr. Nielson tickling my back + Russian Olive tree making my bedroom smell
like heaven on earth - Marley's ghost =
Me happy, really happy.
After breakfast, Nicholas sprayed the front lawn down
{He kind of looks like a Dr. Seuss character}

And then slipped and hit his head.
It was funny until it wasn't anymore.
