    You can’t keep a pony in the city.

    Went out and tried that “good, clean, country living”- turns out I’m a fool for the city!

    One of the few interactions between Meg and “Papa” Arlo and Arlo unwittingly makes a septic joke?

    The terminology where I hail from would be “Grampa Arlo.” That’s the principle our grandkids use to refer to their grandpas.

    One of my grandfathers was papa and the other was grandpa. That way I didn’t have to identify them by name. I was a lazy kid.

    “Green acres is the place for me.
    Farm livin’ is the life for me.
    Land spreadin’ out so far and wide
    Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.”
    “New York is where I’d rather stay.
    I get allergic smelling hay.
    I just adore a penthouse view.
    Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.”

    “…The chores.”
    “…The stores.”
    “…Fresh air.”
    “…Times Square”
    “You are my wife.”
    “Good bye, city life.”
    “Green Acres we are there.”

    I like Papa Arlo. I think it is great.

    The phrase “The grass is always greener on the other side.” refers to the tendency for people to think what other people have is better then what they have. Likely Arlo meant that he would prefer living in a place like what his son has.

    I was fortunate enough to have all four grandparents well into adulthood. At one time we have five living generations. My dad’s parents were Nana and Pop, and my mother’s people were Grandmother and Grandfather. Not lazy – sensible.
