This- is the river by the house I grew up in. It was near that river that I might have hung out during all hours of the evening, up to all manners of mischief.
This is the river by the house I live now.
I go daily with Kai to throw rocks in. Yesterday I saw a group of young teens hanging around on bikes, trying to look cooler than their 13 years, and it made me surprisingly cranky. Tonight, at a time it was far too late for throwing rocks, I saw two cars drive down towards the dam, and I thought about ringing the local cops.
And then, I blushed for being that old.
