Chapter 5, Page 20 All this way, for this?

All this way for a neighborhood playground?

With current gas prices, Dad's question is valid, but there is a lot more to Duluth than this. Really!

They just happened to pick the week went most places were closed for one reason or another. Go figure.

I remember that park: It was fun, and rather attractive.

Seems to me that my sense of timing always was a little, ah, creative.

It runs in the family.

The relative who sold some land for a dollar in what would soon become downtown Chicago? Yeah.

Reminds me of Christmas morning; by around 10:00 am the kids have abandoned the new toys and are playing in the boxes. ;-)

I understand this now - a toy is too limiting to a child's imagination. That is, a toy can only be what it is, while a box can be anything you want it to be!

T-K
