A similar hole was opened up, but instead of an accommodating ladder, a rope with knots tied into it at every foot was thrown down. It didn't reach the ground and as you climbed down you swung to and fro. I was Tarzan swinging in the jungle," he laugh when he finished his story.

  1. Very visual snippet here. Miss Winsome and her uncle are something of an odd couple. Both are thoroughly adorable. And I love, love, love the airship graphic!! In fact, I want one. Along with a flappy airbike.
