all set the stage of what to do with your day. What, what could we do?
We had already eaten lunch. TV only had golf... I think GI Joe had some
things to do. A parachute for GI Joe would have been the best but he was
too heavy to use the home made Saran Wrap one, plus we weren't really
supposed to leave the apartment, which we would have had to do if we threw
him off the lanai... This is where the ball of string comes in handy.
You know GI Joe is an excellent mountain climber, and he has a mission,
to go down to the highway flowers and spy on the the people in the business
we tied GI Joe up, just the one, since there was only one ball of string,
and lowered him down. I am not sure how long we were amused by this
or whether the people in the business suites ever noticed a plastic
doll being raised and lowered along their floor to ceiling window to
spy on them. But to think of it today is all kinda funny and a bit ironic
since Ft. Derussy the military center for RR during the Vietnam War
was also just across the street.
parents sold the condo many years ago, but the building is still there
and whenever I pass it and look up to see it there is a GI Joe hanging
off a balcony.
