We found James on the side of a picture. He wanted to know something. ‘What is it, sweetie?’

p1110464

James saw something cool with a measuring tape and he wanted to replay that with us.

p1110465

But he could not remember what it was. And because he didn’t remember what it was, he could not tell us what it was.

p1110466

Grandmäh came to the rescue. And grandmäh rescued James.

p1110467

Grandmäh said she knew. She she had heard of the same game with that measuring tape.

p1110468

She offered to tell us. She offered to show James. But Grandmäh had just one tiny problem..

p1110469

Grandmäh was old. She fell over from time to time.

p1110470

Even when we picked her back up.

p1110471

James didn’t know what to think of it. He thought this is going nowhere with that measuring tape story. But okay, let’s see how far we get.

p1110472

Grandmäh had a measuring tape with her. She remembered it from long ago.

p1110473

And knowing grandmäh her age, a long time ago really was a long time ago.

p1110474

It was a game that sheep only played when three rules were met. Rule one was craving for tuna. Rule two was not wearing blue shoes. Rule three was shameless giggling over past sheep elections.

p1110475

But now the rules were different. Little grandmähs grow up.

p1110476

We were very curious how all of this would go. Is this part of the game already, grandmäh?

p1110477

It turned out that it was. James hadn’t moved an inch during all of it. The only thing that we saw happening was grandmäh moving closer, holding that measuring tape. We thought it was time for some explanations because sometimes words say a bit more than pictures.

p1110478

‘Well..’ grandmäh said, ‘wait.. James.. will you help me here?’

p1110479

James offered his help. He did not know what was expected of him. Asking for ‘help’ was not very clear to him. Then grandmäh said he should hold one part of the tape.

p1110480

Ah yes, this is the kind of instruction a sheep can work with. Direct instructions. Holding a tape. He sure could do that! Okay, now what?

p1110481

‘Eh..’ grandmäh hesitated, ‘I think I am doing something wrong here..’

p1110482

You.Are.Getting.Old.Grandmäh.

p1110483

‘Push her, Potamotrygorgeous!’ James said.

p1110484

And so we did.

p1110485

Stupid game, James thought. Grandmäh remembered it wrong, I remember now. She wanted to measure the distance between us, but ended up  measuring my patience.

p1110486

Promise me, Potamotrygorgeous, that next time we will play, that grandmäh promises to be not a part of it?

p1110487

Even when she forgets?
