Bits + Pieces // Tree climbing

“Is it possible, or could I have just imagined it? Have my children been climbing trees today?”

“Yes, Captain.”

“I see. And where, may I ask, did they get these – ?”

“Play clothes!” – “Is that what they are?”

“I made them from the drapes that used to hang in my bedroom. They have plenty of wear left! We have been everywhere in them.”

“Are you telling me that my children have been roaming about Salzburg dressed up in nothing but some old drapes?”

“And having a marvelous time!”

(This summer, Simon finally learned to climb the fig tree, too.)
