Dear Diary,

This weekend we built a toy Cable Car with Dad. It runs 80 feet from the balcony to the tree house, and takes about two minutes to make the crossing. We used a model car that Edwin found dumpster-diving at the Salvation Army while Mum was exchanging junk, and a Meccano motor and gearbox that Dad had from a robot he built when he was at high school, some curtain pulleys that were left in the garage by the last owners, Edwin's train controller, the battery from my old Barbie Car, a big reel of twine from Yardbirds, bits of wood and clamps from the shed.

I got three extra chore-stamps for vacuuming the Summer House and cleaning its windows while we were working today, too. Not bad for 6.31 years old. Edwin turned down his offers for extra pocket-money work. He is silly.

The cable car is so cool. I phoned Mary and Charlie to come and look out of their bedroom windows when we got it going.

Edwin and I were trying to be Pirates and get the car mid-crossing. Below you can see me at the driving end.

Time for an Erector set next Christmas? --Ed.
