Bubble Days Are Here Again


Charles, Alice, and the Tower of Bubble

The bubble machine died a few weeks ago, but happily, …it has been replaced! Charles and Alice and I spent much of the morning playing with the bubbles out on the front porch. Yesterday, Charles went into the garage and found some fiberglass stakes, which he and Alice used to pop the bubbles. Today, we found a better use. If you hold the stick just right, it’ll catch bubbles, making a bit of a cluster. These are fun to make and throw around, but leave it to Charles to make it something bigger. What did he decide they should make? A building, of course! Not just any building, a barracks from the computer game, Rise of Legends. In no time, it was quite the bubble mountain, although its resemblance to the structure from the game wasn’t as striking as some of his other work. And yes, Alice popped it when they were done. But she asked Charles (nicely!) first.

Also, Alice has noticed that Poly likes to bite at the bubbles…so she’s been putting them on one of the stakes and trying to feed them to the dog. With mixed results.

Yay, bubbles!

Poly does love to chase the bubbles.

I have actually seen meat-flavored bubbles for dogs.…In my world, a little soap is not going to kill my dog. She eats many other less-savory things.
