Canada lost a great musician and composer yesterday. Jerry Holland died of cancer at the age of 54. Rest in peace, Jerry.
One of the joys of being a stay at home mum is being privy to the iner lives of little boys. We have a back yard trampoline – but it is a very dangerous place. It is simply rife with “bad guys”. Of course, I have protectors – a four year old and a six year old boy armed with broken super soakers. The super soakers have become “freeze guns” – they freeze bad guys in their tracks. Well, except when the six year old’s gun shoots rattlesnakes – or maybe cobras. But these are very special snakes, you see, because they only bite the bad guys. This afternoon, there were bad guys right behind the porch swing where I was sitting and knitting. It was a very good thing I had Geoffrey and Stuart to protect me!
