Level 17

Level 17 is a bitch. I have not found a way through this one. And I can see that there are many more levels beyond this, which is as it should be.

I can't help but think how these games could be used to learn things, like math, and still be fun and exciting. I learn different things at each level but not anything that is likely to help me in everyday life!

Granny can now float down with an umbrella - when I can get her to the umbrella - and she can cut across on overhead wires, holding on by her hands, and she's quite a champion at jumping down rather far. She digs holes like a stevedore, and a good thing too, because now it seems like every gnome is really two. As soon as one goes into the ditch, another arises to take its place. So I have her dig two holes every time she sees one gnome coming.

And now, in real life, I might want to be doing something. I have put more boxes into the storage building, cleaned up a bit here and there, washed some clothes. I think a hike would be good. Don't know where yet.
