A Father's Day Gift

Like most men in the late 50's my hubby has pretty much everything he wants and if he doesn't he goes out and buys it for himself.  He is a man of simple tastes, except for his drum kits, he likes to potter in the garden, listen to music and occasionally read a book.

This year as usual he got gift cards for Bunnings and we had a quiet afternoon tea with my parents.  My mother, also bought hubby a gift.  She always does, he always tells her not too as he is not her Dad, but she likes to come bearing gifts.

Rather than buy him a gift card, she bought him a Newton's Cradle.  We left it sitting on the breakfast bar after my parents had left, both of us where down the other end of the house when I heard the click, click, click of the balls bouncing off each other.  Sneaking down the hall with my iPhone at the ready, I found just what I thought I would find.

Hope you enjoy ....

I'm not sure how to make this only show the latest video, so you get three for the price of one!

Thanks for popping by xxx


  1. max is quite the scientist

    1. He is indeed an smart and intelligent cat, scientist might be a slight stretch - lol. Hope hubby is doing better and you are looking after yourself too. Hugs xxx

  2. Max is both clever and enchanting. I only knew his latest plaything as 'an executive toy' so was very pleased that it has a name of its own. Thank you.

    1. I too did not realise it had a name till I saw it on the box. It is now put away so Max doesn't now destroy it. Thanks for popping by xxx

  3. That is hilarious!!! I bought the Newton's Cradle as a gift for the man who has everything in the hope he didn't have one of these and that it would perhaps amuse him (I have to buy him a dad's gift as he is such a great son-in-law and the dad of some of my grandchildren too) but had no idea it would amuse Max too. He is certainly one highly intelligent moggy. That was a delight to watch. Thanks for sharing. xxxx
    P.S. Thanks for the afternoon tea as well.
