As I sit here in my very noisey livingroom, listening to the sounds of the movie Fat Albert playing on HBO, and the arguing coming from Rebecca and Marissa, all I can think about is how much I would love to be sitting in the park right now under a tree. It would be so peaceful there this time of day. I could watch the squirrels gather acorns and carry them off to where they will be stored for the winter. Seeing the leaves blowing in the tree's with their magnificent colors of red, orange and yellow. Watching a couple walk hand in hand down the path between the tree's, stopping every so often for a romantic kiss or comforting hug. A group of kids playing basketball on the courts across the grounds, or a child playing on the swing. How peaceful that would be, if all that were seen right now. But heck who am I kidding? I would be scared to death sitting under a tree alone enjoying all this. Especially at the park near me. It's full of rowdy teenagers, smoking pot or cigarettes, yelling at the younger kids, or teasing an elderly person. Or walking around begging for cigarettes from people they don't even know. Broken bottles, smashed lighter's and cigarette buts all over where the little one's play. It's horrible there anymore. Marissa and Rebecca ask to go to the park all the time, but we don't take them much anymore. The park is over run by hoodlum's as I call them. Out of their parent's sight and causing mischief. No more can I go to the park and enjoy watching the little one's play so freely. It has come to the point where you have to be on guard constantly, watching your children, holding onto your belongings for fear they will be stolen. Being careful where you walk because the Curb your Dog signs are ignored. Don't get me wrong, dogs are nice, but when they use the park as a bathroom and littles one's are playing, running and rolling in the grass, please obey the signs to clean up your dogs mess.
So, I have no idea why I wrote this entry, lol. I'm bored I guess. But it is true about the park near me. All this does go on. And it's a real shame there is people in this world ruining what could be a beautiful place to sit and relax.
I will go now, I have to fix dinner. Jim is'nt home yet. But Uncle Joe is coming up for a spaghetti dinner with us. I will save Jim's dinner in the microwave for him to have when he get's home. Take care all and have a relaxing evening.
