Sierra the Fearless

Perhaps you would not let your 6-year-old climb who knows how high to help a grandpa put a cover on his camper.  I only did it because he wanted ME to get up there and Sierra became my replacement (because of my "condition").  No, really, I knew she would be fine and she isn't afraid of anything.  It was quite an ordeal.  Sierra and I were helpful until we needed a snack, then luckily a neighbor stopped by to help so we declared ourselves "off duty".  "Why, O, Why, O Why O does your house have turquoise trim?" you are asking.  The answer: because we don't own it.  In fact there are more than three houses with similar trim on our street.  I think there was a door-to-door salesman in the '80s who successfully walked down Dyanna Dr. and suckered a lot of suburbanites into his pukey paint.  But we have perfect neighbors so we can't complain.
