I'm afraid I don't get your point David. Neither Howard or I have much time for playing on the Internet. If you're referring to my posting about someone complaining of children playing in the street, as opposed to, say, holding out for a news flash about an ax murder in Texaco Town, get over it. We do both. Comprende? It's September 2012.

I believe it was rule 62 which stated "don't take yourself to damn seriously"

I'm reminded of my father complaining while I was growing up. He and my mother both grew up in the City of Rochester. He lamented that despite moving to a rural village with big backyards, playgrounds and parks; kids still found it necessary to play in the street.

Billie, are you sure David wasn't being tongue in cheek--as in "well that's where you're supposed to be"? We always played in the street as kids, so why would someone complain about it (unless they were doing something they weren't supposed to be doing)?

I like news items like this. It's small town and old school.

Where else do you play Kickball when no ones yard is big enough? Besides, manhole covers always served as permanent "home plates".

It may be annoying, but at least kids were playing outside and not sitting in front of a TV or computer!
