Rich’s Note:   I was ready to explode yesterday. I had bought and installed
a new burner for my gas grill. I had checked out the site of our new
sponsor, BBQ.com, and was ready to start the BBQ season. I had searched in
vain to find a spring training baseball game on the television, but it’s
still too early. I had walked around the yard staring at all the things
erupting from the ground. Among the pansies was a hyacinth screaming “Look
at me! Look at me!” I did. In the big barrel on the patio, two daffodils
trumpeted for my attention. “Ta-dah! Aren’t we lovely?” And they were,
two-toned and pastel. Elsewhere other leaf-stalks stabbed at the air. “We’re
coming soon!” they seemed to call. But Susan had a roast in the crockpot and
the computer had a stronger call because I had to work on Recipe du Jour.
The grill sighed and so did I. I punched the switch on the computer and
began putting together this week’s mailings. But every once in a while I
clicked on the Braves’ home page to get a little baseball fix. Every once in
a while I slid over to BBB.com and drooled over the sauces and the tools.
They say it’s going to be cold and raining today. They say that yesterday’s
warm weather might return later in the week. Maybe next Saturday I’ll find a
baseball game on channel 5. Maybe I’ll grill some ribs. Maybe the crocus
will call. “Look at us! Look at us!”

(My sister Pat’s version of Kick the Can)

“When I was a preteen at Watertown Arsenal, kids from the age of 6 to 16
would gather spring and summer evenings at dusk to begin to play Kick The
Can. Our can was situated near a tall lamp post whose light radiated for at
least 20 feet. Our can was at its perimeter, allowing "just enough light"
for safety, and "just little enough light" for a true challenge.

I really enjoyed the evenings. Our parents trusted us enough to allow to
range free, yet we were still tethered to "the" whistle.. But this was a
time for socializing. Because of the range of our ages, many of us were not
in the same grade, let alone the same class. Friendships were cemented
during the hiding time, where a gaggle of girls would choose the same spot
to congregate and whisper. The older we became, the more intricate were our
hiding places. We rarely got caught, unless one of the older boys
volunteered to be "it", just to reassert his supremacy among the lesser beta
males. We knew if a smaller kid was "it", we could keep our hiding place all
evening without fear of disclosure.

None of us smoked. None carried weapons. None of us had been involved in a
crime (except my brother, Tim, who had been caught for setting fire* to the
Officers' Club...). None of us had experienced sex. None were out for any
other motive other than to have fun. And the penultimate thrill of the
summer was always to be the savior of captured souls by kicking the can and
freeing all prisoners.

Ah... Would that I could travel that road yet once again...”

*Tim says:
“None of us had been involved in a crime (except my brother, Tim, who had
been caught for ACCIDENTALLY setting fire to the Officers' Club BY RUBBING

Pat says: P.S. You made the best Tinkerbell ever! I am a firm believer in
the fact that THAT singular incident has made you a much better person.
While Captain Hooks, Smees, and Lost Boys can be found everywhere, you HAVE
to be a creative genius to become a superlative Tinkerbell! I had your best
creative interest in mind even at THAT time; I knew that someday you would
eventually thank me for the opportunity.

Tim says: Yeah, like I said last week, “THANKS, PAT”.

Do you remember?

Spanish Harlem

Ben E. King
Words and Music by Jerry Leiber and Phil Spector

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
It is a special one, it's never seen the sun
It only comes out when the moon is on the run
And all the stars are gleaming
It's growing in the street right up through the concrete
But soft and sweet and dreamin'

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
With eyes as black as coal that look down in my soul
And starts a fire there and then I lose control
I have to beg your pardon
I'm going to pick that rose and watch her as she grows in my garden

I'm going to pick that rose and watch her as she grows in my garden

(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)
La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
(There is a rose in Spanish Harlem)
