For those who have not read previous story will paste it now and then give the follow up story. Love cherz.
Naughty of me but I did have a little laugh.

Today when we were driving down a street both hubby and myself noticed two children on the side of the road on scooters. The second child was struggling to ride and carry a sign that read TAKE ME. On the footpath near them was an old bike. Hubby and myself came to the conclusion that the child took the sign off the bike. Whilst driving on I had a little naughty laugh and said to hubby well the sign did say “TAKE ME” ,just because it was really referring to the bike is another matter. lol. We assumed that maybe they were going to use the sign as a jump ramp or something. And no we did not stop and quiz or lecture them. Wondering if you can remember doing a naughty thing when you were young.

Well today when out and about on my walk I passed through the park and at the far end on a concrete path was a group of young boys (seven to be precise) 4 had skate boards and 3 had scooters. They had a wooden triangle block and various pieces of wood forming a jump ramp. Curiosity got the better of me and I walked over to watch their fun. To my amazement I noticed the exact same sign I had seen a boy carrying away from the bike on the footpath. I watched and smiled as these young lads enjoyed the beautiful day and each others company but most important their wonderful creation., they may have had a little help from dad with the triangle block but they had constructed the jump by them selves. I wished them well, told them I hoped they did not have any scrapes and hoped they had many hours of fun. Although the family that had put the sign out on their bike probably had to paint a new one, I am sure they even would have got pleasure watching children have creative fun. Also my smart hubby was indeed right when he had predicted that they indeed were going to use the sign for a ramp. lol.
