….. There was a Bubbers King with cheeks so scrumptious that one day his mother ate them.

Okay, okay, so maybe that’s not how it really happened.

Let’s try again.

Once upon a time…..

PICT0001 edited

It was a cold, foggy morning in January.

PICT0002 edited

And our hero the Bubbers King was only 21 months old.

“Huh?!?” he suddenly cried out with curiosity.

Through the fog, the Bubbers King heard noises.

PICT0005 edited

Noises coming from the playground.

PICT0009 edited

Noises coming from his Daddy!!

PICT0011 edited

Quickly, the hero approached.

“Hey Bubbers!” his neighbor friend Joshua called out, “I’m glad you’re here!  Come on out and help me shovel this gravel.  We’re getting it ready for our new playground equipment to be installed!  And to tell you the truth, our parents need all the help they can get.”

This sounds like a job for the Bubbers King, our hero thought as he immediately grabbed a tool and started….. tooling.

“Wow, thanks for your help!” Joshua said after emptying his over-flowing wheelbarrow, “Oh, and watch out for the Hat Man.”

No sooner were the words out of his mouth then the fog parted…..


….. to reveal the Hat Man!!!!!

“Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!” the Bubbers King screamed in terror.

“Oh wait,” he laughed, “It’s just Daddy!”

PICT0035 edited

Immediately, the Bubbers King apprehended his Daddy.

PICT0055 edited

And took over.

“Now you see, Daddy,” the Bubbers King began to explain…..

PICT0061 edited

“It’s not about manhandling all the gravel into the wheelbarrow all at once.”

PICT0063 edited

“It’s about delicacy and precision.”

PICT0065 edited

“And–oof! Could you give me a hand here?”

PICT0066 edited

“Thanks!….. Like I was saying……”

PICT0070 edited

“It’s about savoring each and every pinch of dirt.”

PICT0075 edited

“Would you look at that!!”

PICT0076 edited

“They’re attaching a truck to the base of the digger toy….. And they’re going to pull it out!!!


PICT0086 edited

“I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.”

To be continued…..
