Ike gave a lovely demonstration for me and my dinner guests last night. He and the neighbor boy took a length of rope, tied a noose on one end and put Jakey's dog, Maddie Out, in it. I must say that Ike ties a very nice noose. They then proceeded to loop it through the basketball hoop and onto the bumper of BigRed.
They had it set up so that as I backed out it would cause the rope to go taunt and then slowly pull Maddie Out up and hang him. It was even timed in such a way that Maddie Out would reach the perfect height as it came into view of my front window. I am so proud of my boy!! That is truly amazing.
Yes, we had to do it last night so everyone could watch and laugh and clap. He and the neighbor boy were so pleased with themselves. I loved watching the pride in their faces.
Dan would have loved this. I am so glad my children got his brains! I know he was watching us and laughing right along.
