Kids in the machinery

There is a popular device in our Children's Room at the library. It's a big plexiglass tube that a fan blows up and through, and kids can put scarves in it at the bottom and they float up and out the top. It doesn't sound like much, but it's mesmerizing! 

Here is a picture of it in an inert state, to give you an idea of what we're talking about.


I was talking with one of the children's librarians today, and they reported that this week a five year old got up on the device (toy?) and stood up on the base, all the way into the plexiglass tube. Discussing this we decided we needed some commemorative photos of the event, and so I set to work.

Here are our four commemorative photos. It strikes me only just now that I would like to put Grandpa Joe and Charlie, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, in here. You know the scene where they drink the fizzy pop that makes them float? I'd like to see them floating around in here.

But these photos of our historic event will have to suffice for the time being:

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
