Land Sakes, I have mentioned often enough my wood-working hobby and my developed skills of having worked on it with a sense of joy and excitement...both of which when you see a little kid enjoying a rocking chair or hobby horse you've made!
About 3 weeks ago a very sad event happened in the immediate area...not a child drowning...there are so many of those over the summer they scarce make the news...this was a little 3 year old child crushed and killed by the tipping over of a child's

the wall as possible, hence, sitting on top of the molding and hence twice, leaning outward at a dangerously, tettering angle!
The glued wedge will accommodate... if the parents even seem half-way interested I remove the top dresser drawer and show them
the 4 inch brace I've installed on the inside back of the dresser top....with a half-inch hole bored in the center of the brace...I 'splain to
'Old Ricky' that he can install what is called a toggle bolt to secure the top heavy dresser to the wall....A 4 drawer dresser,
4 foot tall, 3 foot wide and 1 foot deep, loaded down, is a hefty piece of furniture that will crush a child...Yes, the local parents
of the tragically killed child has spoken on local TV and the Arizona Republic had a story of them and their child... Chief
