Earlier today I was reading through a collection of memories from Alexandria’s Lake Ida and came across a page titled ‘On The Lighter Side’.
I am unsure of the date this lighter side contribution was written but it is still quite relevant.
People with sand beaches fill them with rocks and those with rocks clean them for sand
They travel miles are traveled to be at a quiet lake and bring boxes of fireworks with them
Trees are planted on bare lots and cut down on wooded lots
There are fewer sailboats as it takes talent to sail
Fewer rowboats too because they are not like the ones at the health club
If Lewis and Clark had jet skis, they’d still be going in circles
People sit in the smoke of a campfire to escape the smog of the city
Have a fun and safe 4th.
