Simply Tim: KICK THE CAN

Kick the Can was pretty hot back in the mid 50’s. Especially during Summer
evenings. Seems like right after dinner was the best time, right when the
sun was getting ready to set and fireflies began their ardent signaling from
the darkening shadows. Kids from all over the neighborhood congregated in an
empty lot, and someone would bring a discarded stewed tomato can, or we’d
find one by raiding a trash heap. Usually the can was placed strategically
underneath a tree, where the trunk side would provide maximum protection
from a direct rear assault. If my recollection is even part way correct, the
person who was **it** guarded the can from being kicked by any offensive
invader. And if you could touch an attacker before they reached the can,
they became your prisoner until either the can was successfully kicked or
everyone had become a captured prisoner. Invariably, as the evening grew
darker, participants would filter back to their houses one by one, on time
according to their appropriate ages, to avoid punishment. Eventually, the
oldest player was left, and that person would noisily kick the can all the
way home.

Last night I stood on my back porch just after sunset. For no particular
reason I suddenly shouted out: “Allie, Allie Infree!” It felt terrific. The
only can I could find, however, had “Coors Light” printed all over it. As I
crunched it up, from two blocks away an unknown adult neighbor’s voice
shouted back: “Red Rover, Red Rover, send SALLY right over!”

I think I may have discovered a new form of shout therapy…

Rich’s Note:   Last week’s West Wing was one of the best episodes of a
television program I have ever seen. They dealt with the death penalty and
handled it with a realism that is rare, forgoing the usual soap opera
elements of the program. I’ve mentioned this show before, and suggested you
watch it, and I’m doing so again. Watch this show. It’s on Wednesday nights
at 9 PM Eastern.

Do you remember?

It Might As Well Be Spring

Words by Oscar Hammerstein II, Music by Richard Rodgers as their only film

I'm as restless as a willow in a windstorm
I'm as jumpy as a puppet on a string
I'd say that I had Spring fever
But I know it isn't Spring

I am starry-eyed and vaguely discontented
Like a nightingale without a song to sing
Oh, why should I have Spring fever
When it isn't even Spring?

I keep wishing I were somewhere else
Walking down a strange new street
Hearing words that I have never heard
 From a girl I've yet to meet

I'm as busy as a spider spinning daydreams
I'm as giddy as a baby on a swing
I haven't seen a crocus or a rosebud or a robin on the wing
But I feel so gay in a melancholy way
That it might as well be Spring

It might as well be Spring
