Money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you a yacht big enough to pull up right alongside it. – David Lee Roth

Son #3’s latest purchase.
One of those mesmerising balancing birds.

Not content with balancing it on its little accompanying pyramid thingy, or something so prosaic as his finger, he decided to experiment.

His nose …
birdnose

… and here it is on his elbow.

Two dollars of his pocket money well spent.

ok, how does it work?

and can #3 hang spoons off his nose as well? (another trick I never mastered.)

your boy has beautiful skin, by the way. I like his freckles.

the tongue!
the tongue is a hard one!

Middle has one - and the other day when I went to wake him, I noticed it balanced on the light fixture up on his ceiling.

I had one of those when I was a kid. I loved it and would still love it if I still had it.

I have a big balancing bird and a small one - the kids just love to play with them when they come over. They are forever wanting me to give the birds to them but I tell them they wouldn't have anything to play with at my house.
