Hardy boys

October 11th, 2011

On the bookcase a small collection of Hardy Boys adventure stories. I’d always liked the one where a car is forced to swerve off the road using a large mirror. The driver fooled into thinking he’s about to collide with another vehicle. And a book entitled "101 Places You Gotta See Before You’re 12!". I’d asked Aidan, in whose room I was staying, how much progress he’d made. Couple of years left.


I was spending the night with a young family a little distance from Terrace. Travis, Karen and three energetic young boys. Aidan, Seth and Ben. Ten, six and four respectively. Lots of questions. And a thorough introduction to Harry Potter Lego. Things had definitely moved on since the simple brick. I’d mentioned having a small moon buggy made of the stuff. Came as a little kit. But it was clear space exploration was no longer the thing.
