While the children were away this month, I did some planning, and had some fun shopping for toys. Among other items, I purchased these two lovely items, a retro blast from the classic past:
(AKA, for the cognoscenti, "a stick wiv an 'orses 'ead 'andle". Not
purchased at Woolworth's, more's the pity, where they would have been much cheaper, I'm sure.)
I presented them to the two boys who are here today. Showed them how to use them.
Then left them to it. As you can see, they're having a great
time with these things! My home resounds with "gidd-up", and "woooo", and the galloping of slipper-shod horse hooves.
Yeee-haw! I'm back to work!
