Out of the Mouths of Babes in the Woods

The Tree Hugger and I just got back from a long weekend at our cabin in Knox County, Ohio. Our daughter, son-in-law, and 6-year-old grandson were also there.

One afternoon Phil and Andrew, our grandson, were returning from a walk to the river. Violet, Andrew's dog, ran ahead, disappearing into the tall weeds. Seeing the weeds waving back and forth, Phil said, "That might be a wild animal! Maybe even a tiger!"

"No," replied Andrew, "that's only Violet."

Phil asked, "Are you sure? Does Violet have orange and black stripes?"

"Does a tiger wear 'bells'?" retorted Andrew, referring to Violet's tags.
