Inspired by my PhotoPrompt group and my good friend Delores at The Feathered Nest
For several months, my Husby's health wasn't . . . very good.
In fact, we were quite worried about him.
But, with excellent medical care and ongoing treatment, he has stepped back from the brink.
The conception and planning for a new PROJECT has completed the cure.
I present his 'cure'.

We now have a pirate ship in our back yard.
Or as my Husby prefers to call it, a 'Pie-Rat' ship.
I won't mention the looks we have been getting from the neighbours.
Or the speculation over whether 'we know something they should know'.
And the watching of the sky for the threat of heavy rains.
Moving on . . .
Our ship is built completely out of recycled and scavenged materials.
It consists of three levels.
A plank, ideal for walking into the family pool.
And a flag picturing a pie and crossed forks.
I should probably mention that we rather like pie.
Hence the renaming of all grandchildren, 'Pie-Rats'.

We opened it to the grandchildren - ahem - Pie-Rats, on Saturday.
Following very brief speeches.
The tossing of a pie.
And the equipping of grandchildren with the necessities.
Pirate head scarves.
And lots and lots of food.
I think it is a hit.
Who says the Tolleys don't know how to party?!
