Concept And Construct

Little Grandson helps his Uncle Boy to build an aeroplane.
Boy says 'These are the tail wings.'
Little Grandson says: 'Tail wings?!' Laughs. Observes askance. Hands over a spanner.
Boy flies the aeroplane. 'Do you want a go?'
Little Grandson considers the options. 'No.'
He knows how to use a spanner now, tucks into the deconstruction.
'Shall we build a car?' Boy asks.
They flick through the manual.
A serious little face studies each picture, points out a ship.
'That one?' Boy checks.
They build a jeep.
