Hands-on project makes for happy memories

It was probably my idea. The birdhouse kit, I mean. We lived some distance from our two young grandsons, and no doubt I was looking for a project that would make our short visit more memorable. A new birdhouse, perhaps? To be perched on a low branch where it would be visible from the kitchen table long after we had returned home? Just the ticket.

For the Birds. Really!

Two grandsons and a birdhouse

kit,

With Granddad there to share

their goal.

So busy in that basement shop.

(The hammer played its starring

role.)

The younger boy expressed a

hope,

Beyond his years, a wish so

wise:

“Do you think the birds can

hear us?

I want it to be a surprise!”
