Muswell, Finally

Finally, H. Bean and Muswell can be within inches of each other without one or both of them being offended. Most of the time.

Lego and Worker's Compensation

H Bean was, for a time, quite obsessed with Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. He, around the same time, received a Lego kit with a skid steer loader and a little dude in it who's name will forever now be Mike. I remember walking into the living room one morning with H. Bean quietly snapping away on my phone, this seemingly tragic scene where Mr. Mulligan had fallen victim to a work place accident. I think I was told that he was "sleeping at work". Hmmmm.

Big ol' Crane

It's been awfully busy at the Jackson Butler House these last few months. Here are some from when the snow was still on the ground, and coming out of the sky. We stopped to see the large crane doing something to the roof of the building across from ours.

No Parking

We are back from a brief hiatus. Lots of changes have happened since the New Year, many for the better, however some we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out. I'll be posting a small backlog of H. Bean's photos over the next few days / weeks.

H Bean was fascinated one snowy and slushy walk home from "school" by these No Parking signs by the park. He really likes to get right close up on them, so as to fill the screen with colour. 

Stay tuned, we'll have more soon.

Christmas 2010 Final Tree Thoughts

I've been telling H. Bean that the tree will be disappearing until next year. This hasn't gone down so well. Finally I told him if he wanted to keep a memory of it, take a picture. Here they are.

Henry's Pal Sunday

H. Bean has been taught from very early on that he needs to be gentle and soft with animals, and his friendship with our cat Sunday has grown because of it. He loves chasing him down the hall, trying to take pictures of him. Sometimes though, Sunday will cooperate. I'm thinking that Sunday will need his own page soon, and maybe someday Muswell as well, but I wouldn't hold my breath on the latter.

Short Study of Socks

Continuing with the feet theme, here's a sort study of H. Bean's new socks, moments before a fever was detected

Mr. Sun

"Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Hiding behind a tree...

These little children
Are asking you
To please come out
So we can play with you

Oh Mister Sun, Sun,
Mister Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me!"

Because of some very good friends of ours, H. Bean calls his little smiley water toy Mr. Sun. This post is dedicated to them.

Inside the Tube

Anyone who knows H. Bean knows his father has enjoyed taking everyday objects and making toys for him. Since he was an infant, H. Bean has had re-purposed cardboard toys, or shakers made from plastic bottles of pop. Today H. Bean and I cleaned out his closet and found a bag of these cardboard and plastic wonders. Later, when we looked at the camera to view his dinosaur pictures, we were surprised to see these on the camera as well. My guess is they were taken about 10 minutes before the dinosaur was, when I was making a cuppa.
