Once upon a time two brave explorers ventured into their grandfather's dried up pond. Along with their trusty side-kick Thor and fully armed with cat-tails, the two conquered the thistle-filled mud pit while simultaneously doubling the size of their mother's laundry pile. In addition to protecting them from turkeys and baby frogs, the cat-tails served as a filling snack for the youngest of the band. They escaped unscathed except for a solitary enormous spider bite on the oldest explorer, which has been complained about three times per hour ever since. A successful mission. More to come.
