Cul-de-Sac Rules

Living on a cul-de-sac rules. It is an extesion of the yard and an informal summer gathering place.

Get Ooouuuuttt of the Pictures

Not that I'm trying to wish winter away or to support teasing by face-placement. But I do love playing on the cul-de-sac, listening the all of the neighborhood come to life, and (given the opportunity) being able to read while next to the street.

Lessons and the Greatest Generation

I had a thought the other day regarding learning lessons through difficult or trying times. The "Greatest Generation" (you know, the generation that was born in the depression and had then fought in World War II).

Anyway, perhaps one of the reasons that they have been labeled the Greatest Generation was that they got many difficult lessons in a relatively short time span -- lessons from the depression in four years and then lessons from World War II in four years.

All of us probably learned or will learn the same lessons, but it will take a lifetime (or at least the adult portion of a lifetime) to learn what they learned in eight years.

Just a thought that I had.
