The gut buster

It was the gutbuster race on Baldwin Street and this year William wasn't going to race as he didn't feel fit enough so I said why not go on your stilts and he did.

He got right to the top and back and almost won the race that started after his race was finished. He got a new record for the first competitor on stilts and a photo in the local paper with a short interview too. Not bad for a 10 year old.

He's the athletic one - where we got an athlete from I don't know. Most of us are intellectual and/or arty types. Personally I have three left feet and zero natural ability except in flexibility and aim ( I have a nz D grade pistol title from several years back. Never worked hard enough to move up from there - and it was too expensive too).
