When my son is bored at work


This is James, who is 20 years old. He's the guy who will steam your lobsters, open your clams or filet your salmon at the fish department at our local supermarket. Sometimes, things are verrrry slow and boring. So my son took some old boxes and made himself some armor and weaponry. I don't know what that big axe is called, but I'm glad it isn't real. Then he says to me later that he has to go back to work because he forgot something. "Something" was a shorter shield and a sword of about four feet in length. Again, I'm glad they're only cardboard!
James, aka Jamie, said he had a great sword fight with one of the guys from the deli department!

Silly guy...my son would do the same! Heck, my husband would as well and he is 51! : )

Hugs,

What a riot! I love to see such creativity with ordinary things coming from a 20 year old. In my book, you have sure been passing along some great ways of seeing fun possibiliities in anything, to your son. That he went back to pick up the finishing touches for his sword collection is a hoot. Can't wait to see his next creation. Thanks so much for visiting me on my new blog. Loved your comments ~ so glad you are protecting your neighborhood "bun- buns" too, LOL. Wow ~ having the Alleghenies bordering your sister's place in upstate New York sounds awesome! And having the views of the water surrounding Long Island is neato possibility in my book. Amazing ~ I did a train thing to Switzerland once, too, only from Brussels. I can hear the "Sound of Music" in more than one place, too. Have a great day, & do come to visit again. :-)
