There may be hope for the world yet…

I saw the strangest thing on my way home today.  There was a group of children (somewhere between 8 and 11 years old) playing on their front lawn.  But they didn’t have BlackBerrys, iPhones or portable video games.  Not only that, but the girls weren’t dressed like 20-somethings going to the bar, and the boys were wearing pants that actually stayed up around their waists!  And what were they doing? They were playing tag. Not Strip Tag, or Tackle Tag, just regular, decent, wholesome tag.

Obviously I couldn’t get a picture for proof (that would have been creepy), but I assure you it really did happen. With any luck, these kids will grow up to be actual adults – rather than be just like the rest of the really large children that so many kids grow into these days.

I really, really want a tandem bicycle

I don’t know why exactly, I just woke up this morning with the urge to ride one.   I’m guessing that I had some kind of dream involving such a bike – and a pleasant one at that.

I figure that I could probably buy one easy enough, or maybe just rent one. But before I do either, I should probably work on finding someone to ride it with me.
