Coming home on Sunday from a visit to the outlaws and she who must be obeyed said "this warm weather reminds me of going to school and the tar melting on the road" remember? It always seemed to be sunny then or is it just our memories playing tricks on us? I can certainly remember getting the new pair of sandals, the shiny brown ones, with holes and straps, boys and girls were all the same. And the off white soles with the groves. And god help you if you walked into the tar, you stuck to everything and brought tar all over the place. Then on the bike if you got splashes of tar on your legs, or if you fell off, on your hands. Do you recall the hissing sound of the bike as it tried to travel through the melting tar? Did you ever get stuck in it? Coming home then and out with the butter paper and trying desperately to try and remove the cursed tar.
