"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Toys for the boys


This is a photo of Keith's son and son-in-law playing with seven year old grandson's Christmas meccano set. When I say playing, they were attempting to build a motor bike, following the instructions, and having difficulty. In fact, they were quite surprised to learn that the set was for eight to twelve year olds. Is that a comment on the complexities of meccano or their meccano-building abilities? :)
P.S. I would like to report that Josie and I got our hands on it and built a model of the Camaro in the garden in five minutes........but we didn't!
