Meet MacGyver: Part 2

Stop, wait, if you haven’t read Meet MacGyver: Part 1, you might want to start there. But who knows, it might not make a bit of difference where you start.

Okay, you’ve already gotten a vision of MacGyver making something out of nothing to save the day . . .  Now throw in Max from Where the Wild Things Are (the book version) and blend in a good dose of Dennis the Menace.  The line from Where the Wild Things Are, “. . . and made mischief of one kind and another . . .” is MacGyver’s tag line.  His imagination, curiosity and his innocent ability to make trouble in most situations keeps on us our toes and our family and friends laughing.  I know he’s a quirky little personality and I love it!  At least when I’m not cleaning up one of his innocent disasters. Then some cursing under my breath is involved.


This is MacGyver’s pterodactyl creation made during kinder home-school recess. Like 99.9% of his creations, I had absolutely nothing to do with this. By the way, don’t you know camouflage matches with camouflage regardless of design or color. (And yes, this is a staged photo. He requested these photos. He’s supposed to look like he’s flying in this one!)

I can’t believe you didn’t talk about the time he found a marker and a giant canvas(his bedroom wall) and decided to draw a submarine. I love that story.

Patience, patience. I can’t spill all the beans at once!

Love these pictures! Is he still working on the dinosaur exhibit for the backyard?

Nobody has answered your ? so I will. She’s not famous but the little girl on Monsters, Inc. (except he doesn’t have ponytails and he’s not potty-trained!!!). But if you want famous, I’d definitely have to go with Dennis the Menace.

Funny. I just read your McGyver entry – Dennis, too. Is it being male that does it?!?!
