    I always wondered about the “Deaf Child Area” signs I’ve seen posted on roadways. I never understood what that was supposed to mean to drivers… like “if you see a child in the street, don’t bother blowing your horn because they won’t hear you.” What is one expected to do?

    And as far as erecting basketball hoops on the street, doesn’t that encourage kids playing in traffic?

    I recall living in a development back in the 70s where the parents had actually painted a basketball court on the street pavement… and when their kids were playing, they refused to move for cars traversing down the street. So I drove across the parent’s front yard one evening. They called the police, who then came to my home. When I explained the situation — within two days the hoop had been removed and the township had re-tarred the road with that black sealant. Problem gone!. No neighborhood harmony, but when people treat public roadways as their own personal property, there is no harmony. Some people are just jerks!

    Good ear, friend. We don’t get to hear enough of her voice any more.
    Morningtown Ride from “25 Year Reunion” is my favorite.

    Being from the east, I never knew there was more than one verse. But then, I never cared to look beyond.

    Dontcha’ know? They don’t teach penmanship or writing skills in schools anymore. Who needs to write when there’s keyboards everywhere?

    They don’t teach math any more, either… and why should they? Everyone has a calculator built into their cell phones! It doesn’t matter whether the answer looks right or wrong. They pushed all the buttons and whatever comes out must be right, eh?

    And hot french fries with salt & vinegar from the booth across from the roller rink at Long Point Park! The sixties were GREAT!

    Kinda tough to get 874 when the top FICO score is 850. I think you’re daydreaming.

    Well, not all of them are sanity enablers. My Siamese is an INsanity enabler. He drives me absolutely crazy!

    I haven’t been able to have a Christmas tree or any decorations in several years. Nothing in the house is safe, as long as any door into a room is left open or ajar. He can go through a whole roll of toilet tissue as soon as it’s placed on the spindle. Gotta’ keep him outta’ the bathrooms!

    @clayusmcret -
    Wisdom and knowledge are two different things, too…
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is knowing it that you don’t put it in fruit salad.
