    I usually try not to work in the garage while our grandchildren are here visiting. However once in a while we'll do some light work, and it usually works out well.

    Today seemed like a good day to change the oil in the Nissan, so I dressed the grandson up to help out by being a gopher.

    It worked out very well, as the wrench was silver, the oil filter wrench was red, the jug of oil was green and the oil filter box was yellow. He did very well handing me the correct items as I asked for them allowing me to stay where I was.

    It worked so well, I thought maybe installing some stuff on the truck might work out also, so I lined out the tools I thought would need and made sure they were different colors. Ok so far so good.

    Well, grandpa got hung up on something for a minute, had his back turned and after fighting with a zip tie for a while thought the needle nose pliers might help.

    Isaiah ! I hollered

    "What" came the answer from an area he shouldn't be in.

    "Hand me the blue thing on the floor right behind me please"

    Silence.

    I hear a real quiet "ooops" and turn around to see this.

    Yup he got bored and the powder booth looked like a good time.



    I thought about throwing him in the oven ---but then I came to my wits noting the powder was way to thick on his cheeks and would surely run.
