Children and the Wigglin Water Sprinkler
Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to just let him go outside like he seems to like. Yes, there have been a few desperate times in a park or along the highway that called for such drastic measures. I didn't think much of it until one day, while playing in our front yard, the Grandson suddenly stops and whips it out not ten feet from the street.
He'd already begun when he looked back at me and said, "I gotta go pee pee." And, being the wonderful Grandpa that I am, I just went ahead and let him finish. I've learned from experience, disrupting a male during the act of urination can result in serious psychological damage.
I should be glad though. At least he hasn't tried this on a sidewalk in the middle of town, but we're all going out to a local children's festival today, so there's always the chance ... .

I am an old soldier, now reformed to backyard farmer, writer, blogger and aviation systems trainer. Although working on it, I've yet to earn the title of gentleman.
Things that interest me? Writing in numerous genres but mostly suspense, science fiction (speculative) and mystery. Outside of my full-time job, I love everything to do with aquaponic gardening and suburban homesteading. I often blog or post youtube videos about these subjects along with updates on my small typewriter collection, rants about our world's current state of affairs, surviving a zombie apocalypse or the antics of my backyard chickens.
