Tom bought the C-man a model rocketry set for his birthday. He would have done this years ago, but I am a big yellow chicken and I made him wait until this year.
The had a couple of macho evenings putting the rockets together, and then went out to the soccer fields for the Big Event. The C-man loved it.
Here is the C-man’s description of what a rocket launch session is like:
It’s fun. There’s a big puff of smoke and it goes way up high. Then it comes way down. Then you run and pick it up.
They had two rockets when they started. Now they only have one. Apparently this is not uncommon.
