Allitrunda Is a Sub-Planet Of Triax

When the dust settled from the falling bed thudding to a roaring stop and their big eyes realized no one was about to be whipped, timed-out or even admonished…..the laughter pealed out from deep inside those precious little souls. “Let’s do it again, KK. Let’s do it again!”

We soon had a game going of who could climb up the crooked bed the fastest.

Growing older doesn’t hold many highlights. You have to take them where you can find them. Not many people grab me by the ears anymore, hold me close and say, “Where did all those wrinkles come from?”  You ought to see them light up when I fall down on the floor on all fours and declare, “Who’s riding Tornado first this morning?” What’s a little mark on the wall or some spilt chocolate milk on the sofa. I’ve seen a blue zillion baseball games. 

One afternoon we broke out the old Lincoln Logs and built a fort that would have made Davy Crockett proud. 

And long after they have gone home. When things are quiet and calm…..and dull. I plop down on the magic flying carpet and drift off to sleep with “Let’s do it again K. K., Let’s do it again.” ringing in my ears.”    

Somebody still needs me.
