Never Too Old


Yesterday we went to the park in my childhood neighbourhood
in the north end of Halifax, Fort Needham Park.

There was a red swing suspended from a very large Beech tree.

Sophie wasn't sure what to make of this contraption when Ron jumped on it.
She figured it out pretty quickly.

    1. I always loved to be the pusher, Debra......far more than being on the swing. But yes, we did spend a lot of time in playgrounds back then....all morning sometimes.

    1. Ron taught me how to 'play' and to be 'light', Louise. He has that 'down pat' as you well now.
      It was COLD as this park is high up on a hill. Next time you are in town we will go there.

  5. What a fantastic shot! It really does look like Sophie is pushing the swing. And I love this! You are certainly never too old to do this. I do this every chance I get.

    1. She almost got hit in the head too, Martha!! But once she got the 'swing' of things she knew what she had to do.

  6. No, never too old for that - I don't think.

    1. Ron isn't anyway, Sharon. I always got dizzy on swings....even as a child. Go figure!

  9. I'm glad to see Ron has never lost his Inner Child. Sophie and Mr Orangie look like they're having fun, too.
