      Thank you, bulldog. I’ve got the big hands part down, and what I lack in strength can be remedied by a rope. If I was in Buzz Lightyear’s situation in the photo, I could use the rope to tie myself to the bumper and tie my friend to me. Then, like so many other times in life, together we could hold on tight to each other until the trouble is past.


  3. Haha this photo makes me smile as well!
