Heroes do not easily tolerate the company of other heroes.


When were were up on the coast earlier this month, Henry turned his hand to refitting long-discarded farm equipment. Here you can see an old plough that he fiddled with for a bit and got it up and going and we tilled a couple of acres before morning tea!

Tilling a couple of acres before tea? Wow!...coming from a family of farmers( maternal grandparents..I know what a labor that can be!)..

That wasn't meant to ryhme, btw...I think I'm channeling my inner Dr. Suess again :)

Look at the concentration on Henry's face! He will accomplish whatever he puts his mind to in life. Beautiful shot.

EGTG, in our house, that role is up for grabs if he wants it!
