Teeter Totter

Teeter Totter Up down. "Don’t bump your bottom on the ground!" UP down. Inside the curvy tunnel is a dark, spooky space. WOOPS, I'm sorry Patrick, I could not see your face. A slippery slide we move down fast, Sarah’s arm in a cast! I love to swing with Lindsey Loo, if she swings too high, she'll lose a shoe. Jack likes the tire rope the best, he just won't stop and take a rest! He circles until he's dizzy, making his Irish curls turn frizzy. Gertie reaches for each monkey bar, “LOOK at me” she brags. She thinks she's such a star, even I can climb that far! It’s finally time for us to go, have ice cream and take a rest. Our playground time is just the best! 6/21/2021 THE PLAYGROUND

Gosh, isn't it great praise, when someone describes your writing using the word, "excellent" Thank you! Sorry to respond weeks later, still learning how to figure this site out at times. You made me smile.

Oh, this is such a barrel of monkeys, Marikate! Love and kisses: It's a FAVE for me. Thanks! And best of luck in the contest too. Cheers, Gershon

That's such a funny thing to say. They were little monkeys. It's awful I respond to comments months later. I forget to. 17 years a teacher of young children, I spent many days on those playgrounds. Oh, the cute stories I could tell. Your comment so true!
