Finish the story begins with: Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?”

Hey boys, how ’bout y’all makin’ yer Ma some wind chimes?

Tommy groaned as the three other boys jumped up and down, excitedly talking about all the “cool” things they could use to make their wind chimes.  Making wind chimes, especially with his younger brothers, wasn’t exactly Tommy’s idea of a good time.  He’d much rather be out hiking in the woods that surrounded the small family cabin, maybe even taking pop shots at the numerous gophers running around.  Ma was always fussing about the gophers getting in her garden.,  Or maybe hiding out in a tree fort he had made himself, reading a book.

“Awww, Maaaa,” he whined. “Do I hafta.”

Ma gave him that look she gave whenever one of the boys got to whining.  

“Tommy,” She scolded.  “You’re way to old to be whining.  Tell you what,  make wind-chimes with the boys and then you can have some time to yourself to go hiking.”
