"Boo-Boo Relief"

What better way to relieve the discomfort of a summer mishap than to break out an ice-cold tube of frozen slush?  It certainly seemed to work for this little camper at The Monteagle Assembly who was willing to discuss his "boo-boo", but the explanation was not about to interfere with the enjoyment found at the end of a frozen cylinder of lemon-lime.  For you older readers, this tube has obviously replaced the much-revered Popsicle, that summer staple so many of us grew up with many years ago.  Surely you remember the antiquated treat that came with two protruding wooden handles that afforded you the opportunity to break your icy treat in half and share it with a friend.  


  1. A beautiful child shot beautifully, Jim, and with a warm story to boot. Very nice.

  2. Delightful. As for the 'quiescently frozen confection' (an hilariously Correct term for something supposed to be playful), I'm an old-school popsicle girl. The plastic-sausage version has the distinct parental advantages of cleaner eating and, potentially, grownup fun in sharing from the tube (either the same open end or both ends opened and slurped simultaneously a la Lady and the Tramp's spaghetti). But what's a frozen summer treat without a little mess? And happiness shared is happiness doubled. ;)

    Never mind all of that, this kid is a charmer. Great shot!

  3. What a cutie! And the frozen tube looks great. Love the photo.
