Start em' young

I hope this OK to post. I recently had a clean car day with my 4 year old grand son. I was impressed how into it he was! Lots of questions, very enthused the whole process.
After the final vacuum, and we got the noisy vac shut down, I ask him how he like cleaning, he said "Grandpa, the vacuum is like shaving a dirty mustache of an old man"…..! ?

That's excellent, thanks for sharing.

And we all now know how to get the vacuum tip to the correct spot in those back seats!!

Just because now you know how to do it, doesn't mean you'll be able to do it.
Years ago I was repairing gear box on my tractor. Dropped small gear inside the box behind couple of shafts, what made sharp bend. I could feel the gear with my fingertips, but not able to grab it in the box still filled up with oil.
After spending like 20 minutes trying, I called my son - about 5 YO at the time.
With his small hand took him 3 seconds to get the gear.
Nice pictures. The blond sure is cute.
