There's a spring in our steps because spring is nearly here

(Continued)

One of my many other pastimes was to throw an airplane glider directly into the wind and watch as it made a perfect landing on the grass below. Tossing a plastic toy soldier with a parachute attached kept me busy for what seemed like hours at a time. I even became more adventurous by gently securing the soldier to one of my kites in hopes that once I reached the optimal altitude it would be released and glide back to Earth. I doubt that I will ever attach four or five balls of twine to my kite again, especially since I am unable to scamper across three or four fields and jump over fences. I guess you can’t bring back the little boys that we once were, but hey, that’s why God gave us grandsons.
