Bob and I suffered a small tragedy this morning when the vacuum cleaner snagged our beloved Ferris wheel music box and it ended up in twenty pieces or so on the floor. It was over twenty years old and was quite pricey in its day. The kids will also be disappointed. They had developed their own fantasy lives for the various figures in the tableau . . . When he was younger, JJ would have let the thing run all evening if we had allowed it. Once Bob dug into the mechanism and flipped the switch to "off." He told JJ that the music didn't play because it was broken. Not to be outdone, JJ also got into the mechanism, found the switch and then proudly announced to Uncle Bob that he had fixed it . . .
