Fort Stix

This is my new fort.

This is how it happened.
Let's just say Mom is not as happy as I am.

The terrible storm on Saturday brought high winds, torrential rain, power outages for over 10 hours, and the uprooting of one large pine tree on a collision course with our house. It also brought me one heck of a new fort! Why don't humans get that!?

When Life hands woo a downed tree, make a fort with it -

Maybe a nice bowl of lemonade would be nice!

WOW! Fort Stix is pretty wild Brind! I suppose I can see why your mommy wasn't as excited as you, but at least you got to play in the fort, and your house was not crushed!

Hi, Brind...

I agree with you, but I think My Mom is kind of siding with your Mom...

They just don't get it, do they?

Whoa am I sorry to see that! Can't you just by with the couch and a blanket like all of us kids did? :)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow we are totally behind - we think that is a cool fort, but we can understand why your mom is not happy about it at all! And it is too bad the tree fell over to make the fort - we are guessing they have to take the whole thing down which stinks for you!
