    I’ve gone though school, even college and now retired…But I don’t believe I have ever used the phase “Deliberate Obtusitude”

    Where did I go wrong?

    Sounds like a band name.

    Deliberate obtusitude !!! Excellent !!! It was stock in trade for my kids when they were teenagers. Wish I had had that term to help me. (If you can name it, you can tame it? Yeah, right.)

    Jef – The Drive, Hines? It was something special in the 70s. Can’t believe I never took any pictures. Frisbees had the right of way – all traffic stopped as some kid in cut-off shorts ran out in the road to fetch one that got away. (Still is special, of course.) I wrote a song for it many years ago – " I’m going cruising down Hines"… “I know there’s one place where I can always find my smile.” ~ The little bridge at the base of the hill was a great place to play Pooh Sticks with the kids when they were very young. ~ Any other Detroiters out there remember the glory days of Hines?

    How about creating a self-repeating time loop by carjacking a TARDIS and stripping the time-vortex from it?

    I think Frazz is working backwards from September, so Summer vacation would start in March. In fact I think that’s where the obtusitude comes in!
