A Moment of Clarity..

Three weekends out of each month,we get to have Little Newt all to ourselves!
Of course,he's The Lizzard King's little boy,and Mom O' LK's grandson,so quite naturally they get first dibs on the quality time.
This is as it should be.
But Newt and I are buddies,so a portion of the weekend is set aside for the two of us to engage in such mischief as is likely to occur whenever boys are left,unattended,to their own devices.

Much of our time together of late,has been spent marshaling our resources in an attempt to put a stop to the ever present 'Raptor' problem!
..damm things get worse every week.

Not to worry however,because young Newt is equipped with an armory of such state-of-the-art NERFological whizbangery necessary to dispatch the hordes of ravenous Raptors that have somehow managed to infest our house during his week long absence.
It's our job..
It's what we do...

We don't perform this vital public service for nothin' you understand.
We are mercenaries,after all..
Newt and I are compensated for our tireless efforts with great zip-lock bags, filled to the breach in Million-Dollar Bills!

Saturday last,between skirmishes,Newt relaxed on my bed and took an accounting of our well-earned bounty.

Sling: 'Hey Newt,..are you puttin' those bills in the proper order?'..

Newt: 'No..It's not real money'.

Sling:.. 'Oh,of course...How foolish of me'.

Newt: 'If I was gonna put it in the bank,I'd organize it myself,..because Bankers don't really like to organize'..


Surely,..there's a place for this level of insight in Congress..

And if our young Newt can see this why the hell didn't the financial analysts???????

That kid is a genius. Surely there's a place for him in President Obama's White House. And thanks be to heaven that raptor bounty can be paid with funny money.

"Out of the mouths of babes..." bloody hell

Out of the mouths of babes indeed. No flies on that boy.

And every lad needs an Uncle Sling in some form for raptor hunting and various other forms of mischief making- not to mention the pearls of wisdom he'll no doubt later repeat to his own Little Newts.

Ahh, now I know who to come to for a bailout!

Enjoy this goes by way too fast. You are sooo blessed!

OK, sling....we have to get working to get the age law for president changed. how old will he be in 8 years? He needs to be ready when Obama leaves.....actually that money he has is probably worth more than the paper we use as legal tender now.

I love Newt, he is a smart whipper snapper.

Great Kid and good times for Uncle Sling!

I want to pinch his wittle wise cheeks and give him a big fat smooch. Except he'd run away and hide...only to sneak slowly back out to the porch and hover...until I tried to pinch his wittle wise cheeks...(rinse, repeat).

Love that kid.

Oh my God, that is too cute!--and wise! *grin*

I think kids are sooo wise sometimes. On our plane ride home from Florida, we hit bad turbulence, and everyone was freaking out...except for this little three-year-old girl sitting in the seat behind me, who was just giggling and laughing away and yelling "Wheeeee!" We all got a laugh out of her, and she helped us stay sane until we landed. :)

Kids are awesome. :)

I hear there are still openings in President Obama's cabinet. And hey, this kid hasn't even had time enough to have screwed up his own taxes, so he'd probably be a shoe in.
