MN Worker-A Great Dad!

A different kind of worker!

I stopped to chat with a neighbor whom I had never met before when I saw his head poking above their very high fence. He obviously was working on a tree house that I could barely see but which intrigued me. His young daughter was ready for this new backyard environment, and Dad was working to repair and refurbish the old structure for his child. Aren't Dads great?!

  1. Yes, dads are great! Mine hauled a great big playhouse to the backyard when I was little. He told me at breakfast that I would have a surprise waiting for me when I got home from school. I practically ran all the way home and saw the roof of the playhouse in the backyard before I ever made it to the front yard.

  4. Hi Kate - Have been trying to leave a comment on your blog all week but phone lines here are so bad I just can never download your complete page and just can't open up your comments pages. Whew - finally managed today - easier on weekends when people aren't at work!!
    So enjoy your blog - love all the photos - when I can see them!!

    Yes Dad's are the best aren't they?! My Dad made us a cubby, and lots of other things like dolls' beds, a pretend stove, a huge dolls' house etc etc.
    Long Live Dads!!!

  8. Look at the stuff that has oozed out from the structure. That's a wonderful photo all in itself.

    Yes, he makes a great feature image for a paeon to Dads everywhere.

  10. Yes, indeedy. And a treehouse sounds like such a lovely idea!

    I wanted to follow up on your comment at Villigen about the damsons. They are available in the US and are suitable for the USDA zones 5-7. I have a link to information about it at the US Arbor Day Foundation, plus a link to a new photo at my overflow site about another variety of plums (grown by Jefferson and Washington on their plantations) that appeared at the stand this morning.

    Thanks for your visits and comments!

  12. Yes Dad's are great. Mine let me roll his hair in curlers and play beauty shop when I was pretty young. Mom was at choir practice and this was our weekly time to act silly and just have together time.
    Thanks for the walk down memory lane.
    Your neighbor has such a nice smile. I'm sure his daughter will be thrilled with the tree house.

  14. Every Dad who builds a tree house will reap the reward of imaginative children who make their father proud.

  18. As kids, my older brother and I had two friends, brothers our ages, whose Dad had built an incredibly sound and nice tree house in a mimosa tree in their back yard.

    I wrote a blog post about it if you care to read it sometime.
