The twins like to ride horses. Not real horses. They have a rocking horse, horses on a pole, the vacuum cleaner. Almost anything will do. Their favourite horse is Dan. He gets down on all fours and marches them around the house. That was great when their combined weight was 40 pounds. Now that it has reached 70 pounds (and his knees and back are breaking under the weight), he's a bit slower, but he does his best.
The twins went for a "ride" Monday night. Katie shouted "Bethie! Where are we going?". Bethie's response was very nonchalant. She coolly replied "To the glue factory". I laughed until I thought I would die! Dan did not laugh. In fact, the ride ended rather abruptly!
