Rube Goldberg would have been proud of us today. We built an amazing project in the living room that used a lot of tape, blocks, tracks, cardboard tubes, plastic soldiers, and a golf ball. The twins made signs that leaned up against the contraption that said things like: The Total Awesomeness Ride.
Zion was the engine behind the enterprise–which meant that he launched the ball and made most of the adjustments to the stacks of blocks and the obstacles and inclined planes the ball had to traverse.
The word “momentum” was bandied about–with occasional questions like, “So, what is momentum anyway?”
Dee Dee came over with a pair of walkie-talkies, but he needed a guy with a screwdriver to help him install the batteries. I walked him across the street to my husband, Ray (the guy with a screw driver). I loved walking back across the street with Dee Dee. Spoken into one of the walkie-talkies: “Do you hear me?” Spoken into the other walkie-talkie: “Yes, I hear you.”
Library began with the police intervening in a domestic argument in one of our families, and the kids leaving the library quite suddenly with their mother, so it was not all rosy, but we provided a little diversion during the confrontation, and we’ll be here when the dust settles. That is one of the strengths of the library. We’re always here. Reliable.
Another mostly-good day at the library.
