A Calling Card 

I came home yesterday to this on my front steps:

Obviously a child, my guess was about 4 years old.  At first I thought it must be my friend Franklin, but that would mean he was not in school.  The mystery was answered this morning as I was walking Lloyd and saw Kanahei and her dad.   She loves giving sticks to Lloyd, and had obviously come to visit while I was away.  It brought back memories of taking walks with Ethan, and he would collect sticks, some very big.  If I tried to get him to leave them behind, he responded that someone else might take them.  We always had a pile in the back yard.  I think that I will leave the sticks there for a while.

Progress on my mystery project:
