You would have thought it was Christmas here yesterday! Thom gave Bernard and Danny their solar power lamps/cell phone chargers.
They were very surprised and appreciative. After we went back into the house I looked out at our pool veranda and there they were, like a couple of little boys digging into their Christmas presents. Kind of reminded me of Alex when he was little and would get a new lego set. He’d have to open it and build it right then and there.
(Notice how Buddy is never very far from Bernard? He’s Bernard’s Buddy.)
I brought out a permanent marker so they could label their pieces and Danny said by way of explanation (and kind of sheepishly), we want to charge them now so we can use them tonight. I said I understood, I had wanted to do the same, it’s like a new toy and you want to get it to work right away.
They positioned the solar panels just so, checking the sun’s angles and adjusting their panels. (Coco came over to see if the panels were edible or if they could serve as chew toys.)
The next morning I asked Bernard how his lamp worked and he said, it is so bright, SO bright, we really appreciate it!
