    Yeah, haven’t seen one of those in years. It’s a shame. And there’s a long list of rules at my kids’ school because every time someone gets hurt, they make up another rule. Sigh.

    We live in an age of paranoia.

    Come to think of it, I haven’t seen one in years either. They just kind of all up and vanished.

    It’s kind of silly the teeter-totter got the axe, though, when you think of how many ways you could hurt yourself on all the other playground equipment, and you don’t see THOSE going anywhere.

    People who rush to sue over every little thing don’t realize, or don’t care, that all those lawsuits contribute to making all our lives more expensive. Opportunistic lawyers don’t help either, and give everyone int heir profession a communal black eye. Greed will be its own punishment when we can no longer afford to live. Meanwhile, it’d be nice to go up and down on the teeter-totter. Or, as we called them on my playground, the see-saw.

    used to be playground equipment was made from metal that rusts/corrode. now, it is made from recycled plastic with recycled rubber/plastic replacing wood chips. we live in a plastic world.

    Not only reminded me how many things from the playground (as I knew it) are no longer around, but how old nursery rhymes like this would make no sense to children. Mother Goose Rhymes (on see saw has “Johnny shall have a new master” – as the children of the poor worked in servitude, ala Dickens). Listen to the rhyme HERE
