A map in the making – mother and son

Treasure Words

“It stopped raining, it’s a great day for worms! Lets dig!”, he shouts

then begins to sing, “out there in a world outside of Yonkers….”. He

pauses then asks, “What’s Yonkers?”


“It’s a city in New York”, I reply.


“Oh…do they have puppet shows in Yonkers?”


“I don’t know, I suppose they do”, I say.


(He digs a few holes, but finds no worms)


“HEY! I know, lets bury some treasure!”, he shouts.


We run home to get a container and the camera. He puts a bouncy ball

in the container and closes the lid. He digs a hole in the far corner

of the playground, places the container in the hole, buries it then

marks the spot with 3 small rocks.


“These are the clues”, he says in a stern voice, “Go to the back of

the playground. Go left. In the corner by 3 rocks”, then adds, 
“I’ll draw a MAP”!
