Have you ever heard the old Polish Proverb, “Not my circus, not my monkeys?” Hu-Dad could only watch yesterday and realized we are his monkeys.
Hu-Dad has all of these camping rules which include no singing in the campground, being nice to others, and so on. The newbie, Landon, has been on his best behavior until a rocking chair entered.
Some how, some way, Landon hooked one of Hu-Dad’s rocking chairs for human visitors and pulled it close. The plan was apparently to sit in the rocking chair.
Apparently, Landon never quite counted on the little detail that rocking chairs rock. Not to mention our picket line might be a little short for climbing. This effort went on for quite a while. Success, however, was quite elusive.
Quite the monkey, huh? Which is what brought that old Polish Proverb to Hu-Dad’s mind. And the realization that the monkeys were all his.
