Remember this toy?
We’re going back to the mid-70’s and later. This toy hit the market like a tsunami. Lots of fun.
Unless your neighbor’s kids had them, and loved to race down the slight hill, blocking the sidewalk and screaming bloody murder at 6 a.m. and keeping it up All. The. Livelong. Day.
Remember this song?
Cute, right? Until you’ve heard it a million times as your kids go beeping through the house on a rainy day. Ranks right up there with 100 Bottles of Pop on the Wall. After a while you really want to disable the bus.
Well, things are quieter now. We don’t have sidewalks in our neighborhood, and not many little kids. The biggest noise problem we have now is whoever it is who’s been setting off fireworks just about every night since Memorial Day. Because the house is usually closed up while the air conditioning is running, the booms and bangs aren’t all that much of a problem once you know what they are. Amazing what you can learn to sleep through.
And that’s all, folks. I have a very long day ahead, nine clients if they all show up. By 9 p.m. I’ll have all I can do to get into my car and let the wheels take me home.
