    A Playground within the Yard

    Inasmuch as I love my kids, I really don’t want them going out of the house to play. They have enough toys that they can play with and they can just invite their playmates and friends over to play at our house. I’m not very comfortable with the idea of sending them out to play because I can never be too sure of what goes on outside the confines of our home. That’s one reason why I’m contemplating on buying them a swing set that we can set up in the yard so they wouldn’t have to go out anymore and play at the nearest playground that has wood swing…

I sometimes think about those people who own private planes, yachts, speed boats, jet skis, ATVS, and the like. Imagine the maintenance on these stuff. For example, a yacht is a very expensive piece of water vehicle. And if you have it, you have to have somewhere to park it so you have to have a membership to those yacht clubs.
