Bad usage of toys and furniture repair

We got a call this morning from the Brand Management Group of Tinkertoys International, threatening us with revoking our rights to play with their products due to a "reckless disregard of proper product usage protocol that is clearly explained in the waiver printed on the product manual."

What? Tinkertoys come with a manual? I hung up, assuming it was a crank call. Later, upon going through the pictures on the camera, I came across these two, and the first one clears up the phone call. I'm not sure who's idea it was to use perfectly good Tinkertoys like this, but after that phone call, I'm doubly glad to be leaving the area for a few days.

The other picture shows me trying to repair a bargain couch that WHM found on Craigslist. Darci is making fun of the faces I was making while struggling with the various bits and pieces that needed repairing. Riley is busy chasing the idiot dog. 

It's possible both kids learned some new words. 

OK, now back to packing up the car.

That's it - move along...

PS: Yes, I made up the phone call part, in case you were wondering. Sadly, I did not make up the new words part. The kids were pretty distracted though.
