I need to tell you a secret. I hold back in my writing so as not to offend you. I do not want to offend you. In the case of the recent BP incident I think you will agree this is a sad summer for all the animals and environments affected by the spill. Maybe it is a good time to rethink your marriage with your car(s) and get a divorce or, at the very least a trial separation :)! What do you get out of the deal? You may get leaner, greener, save money, and have more fun.
Seeing kids play outside is one of the reasons I love summer. The world seems much happier when kids are playing games. I was passing a house when I noticed this sign, glad I did not have to walk the plank!
