“They’re beautiful, Edward. I have always wanted wind chimes to hang on the porch out back. These will do wonderfully. It’s great that there are two sets of them. One for each side of the awnings. Plus, there are completely original. I just love them.”

“Well, Mom. They aren’t really original. Me and Sam camped Hallows Eve night last October and got them cans. Grandpa got to our campsite before we could remove all our stuff. He picked up all the rubbish and told us we had to recycle everything that was left. He wanted no footprint left in his woods by us lazy scallywags.”

“Sounds like your Grandpa.”

“We had enough cans to make Aunt Delores, Aunt Esther, Aunt Agatha, Aunt Betty, and Grandma Puffin chimes, too.”

“What cans did you use to make their wind chimes?’’

“Same cans, Ma. Beer and Beans. That’s all we ever take camping.”
