Notice had been given. After the old, metal Monkey Bars were dismantled last fall an item in the condominium newsletter promised a replacement in the park.
The work crew arrived on a pleasant May morning. A trailer full of parts and tools plus a cute little dozer to smooth and prepare the site. Prepainted or molded in bright primary colors they laid out the pieces and started to assemble.
Did they play with Tinkertoys and Lincoln Logs as children? Did they spend hours with Lego designing and constructing buildings, space ships, and machines?
Directions are called back and forth between the workers. Chug, chug as the dozer engine contributes. More power tools to drill deep holes for the main supports.
It looks like fun to this girl that built alongside her brother with his building toys and her sons with theirs.
