It's Tough Being a Kid...


...especially when you have 35 brothers. With nearly 70 kids at the orphanage, it can get "rough and tumble" to say the least. A few stitches later, all is well.

A big mango, plucked from a tree moments earlier, will take his mind off his noggin.

The girls in the previous 2 posts are beautiful beyond measure --- but when you post pics of these little guys, you make them look pitiful.

...and now I want a mango too.

When my Parents lived in Thailand they made a dish called "mangos and sticky rice" --- my mom made rice boiled in sugar water and then put mangos in it. Apparently it was a common thing over there, I was glad that recipe made it back to the states and through my childhood.

Great shot, poor little guy. Stitches are NO fun! But now he has what my fam calls a story teller (scar) --- with 7 of us, we all have plenty.

Well said, Jay,

Your parent's Thai recipe sound wonderful. I should Google that and see if I can come up with it. I just bought some mangos.

I didn't want to say too much in my original post, but this little guy got hit in the head with a Cricket bat. He had to spend the night in the hospital for observation. It's a wonder they don't have more mishaps at the orphanage.

I think he has great photonality :O) CUTE KID! The mango looks yummy too.

Hey, this photonality thing is catching on, Carol! I've had others using your word now!

I gotta start taking kids like him to Walmart with me for protection.

Dan Denardo said...

Hahaha! He's got a mean cricket bat, Ron, and I'm sure he'd be glad to use it in your defense.
