In the words of the Fresh Prince “If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it”. Yes, there’s nothing quite like seeing Will Smith in his “Go Speed Racer Go” T-shirt.
This piggy backs on my previous post in a way because there are a few like-minded people out there who reminisce about the way things used to be. When I was a child, we lived on a cul-de-sac that was amazing. I had friends to play with all over my neighborhood and my parents formed a “garden club” with the other neighbors so they could chat while we played. We played hide-and-seek, flash light tag, and basically ran wild through the streets. It was a safe place to play and all the neighbors knew who we were. Last night my children got to do the same thing at our neighbors house…at the end of our cul-de-sac. Aha! The cul-de-sac crew is back. They were catching lightning bugs, running around playing games and oh yeah, playing on the zip line. The adults jokingly talked about installing zip lines across all the backyards. I would so love that. Yes, I have played on the zip line.
Neighborhood cook-outs are not a thing of the past, and I really do enjoy sitting in the yard watching the kids play (covered in bug spray), chatting about events in our lives. Thanks neighbor for bringing back “summer madness”.
