    They still have a freezer that has to be defrosted? Time for a new fridge.

    Suburban kids. Everyone takes them everywhere and does everything for them. I grew up in Chicago, took the bus to shopping areas, rode my bike a couple miles to the park, ran errands in the neighborhood for Mom, and it all started when I was about 10 years old. I went alone to doctor and dentist appointments and visited museums and tourist sites downtown when I was in high school. Moms never picked up kids at school. They didn’t have their own car and many, like mine, didn’t even know how to drive. On rainy days you could see the mothers with umbrellas waiting outside the elementary schools to walk home with their children.

    So today a college age girl is bragging about taking a subway and hailing a cab. I noticed Mom and Dad picked up Luann and Bernie at the airport. No bus out to suburbia? And life goes on.

    Believe it or not, back when I was teaching English to adult immigrants, I read that a moment is supposed to be 1 and a half minutes.

    And I remember fountain pens BEFORE they had plastic cartridges. You had to hold the pen over the ink bottle, open the little metal thingy on the side of the pen, and then slowly close it as the pen drew up some ink. I can’t remember the last time I saw a bottle of ink.

    That’s probably why lots of people get contact lenses.

    As I read it, it was an announcement, not an invitation, which means she just got married. At least that’s what an announcement meant many years ago.
