First: I know this isn’t the proper way to use stilts. But it just looks better as a drawing. Once Christmas my Dad made stilts for each of us kids. The morning had not passed before a new rule was made: “No stilts allowed in the house”. Anyway, through the years I would often spend summer days practicing using my stilts, and seeing how many laps I could do around the house in one go. Two summers ago my family had a reunion to celebrate what would have been my Grandpa Morton’s 100th birthday. We pulled out the stilts for some races… I schooled everyone.
