8, 8 days until Disney! Ah ha ha!

Flashback

I'm in my home town on a business trip, so I went by my elementary school (which I haven't been back to in almost 30 years)

When I was there we put up a mural to commemorate the Gemini program, after which the school was named. Of course I was sure the thing was long gone.

Nope - it's still up, and they've just started a restoration project on it. I got to touch the pieces I put in place 30 years ago... (one was a copper foil piece for an astronaut's faceplate - the foil is all worn off...)

Just think of the co-worker's breasts and it will all soon pass away.

You're lucky, Philo.  They tore mine down (a nice piece of international style construction) for one of these flimsy modern buildings that is trying too hard to look like something else.

Is it a shopping mall?  An office building?  No, it's an elementary school.  Maybe.

No "jungle gym" or "monkey bars" at the new school, either.  Too dangerous for the kids to play on.  They probably are kept inside studying for their federally-mandated end-of-grade tests, anyway.  Hell, recess was my best subject!
