    Coolness! He would have been an awesome cat burglar. 😉

  2. Very cool, especially the way he climbed the tree. 🙂

  3. Out to enjoy all life has to off….without any concussions or broken bones, hopefully. There were even some milder examples in the old Fred Astaire-type dance numbers in films of that era

      Life, itself, was more physical back then. I remember the Fred Astaire numbers. They were great.

      • In one of them (Singing in the rain?) the male lead stepped up lamp posts, spun around and use the environmental elements as foot placement. Hollywood had those rotating rooms for special effects of people walking up walls and ceilings. Even Disney’s Mary Poppins had the chimney sweeps leaping all over roof tops and buildings….which I wanted to imitate, but mom said no. What fun it all looked. Rather glad soem are up moving around and playing outside

Talk to us. We talk back.
