"The Trampoline is Dangerous"..........

Lil' Wolfie came in from the back yard, out of breath, and announced in quite the serious tone, "Well Dad, looks like we're not going to be able to jump on the trampline at my birthday party this afternoon, it's just too dangerous for some of the little kids."

"Wolfie, I replied, I put that trampoline and the safety ring an net together myself. It's not dangerous, so long as we have a grownup watching. Has something come loose? I'll get my toolbag and fix it."

"No Dad....it's not broken. But I don't think I want to jump on it either, I could get hurt."

With that, he turned and trotted out the front door. I was beside myself. Had he been jumping without supervision and scared himself? It was just so unlike my fearless Lil'Wolfie............

I walked out to the backyard, turned the corner.....and decided that the little guy had good sense.

I didn't want to jump on it either. A fellow could get hurt......




A made up story for a picture that seemed to beg for one.
Gotcha? heh.......

Ha! You did got me! But then again, this looks like something that can happen at my Aunt and Uncle's house in Wimberley, TX...they are plagued by whitetails eating herbs, flowers and shrubs.

And if I were to even stand on the mat, i would make sausage out of at least one of them using his own antlers! I's a big boy...
