I can't believe how early kids are going back to school these days. I have always loved this time of year, when it's long, lazy, last days of Summer ... end it with my birthday, then go back to school after Labor Day. NEVER before. I know kids out here who have been back in school for two weeks ALREADY. Lame. Sorry, kids.
Perhaps in this spirit, the metal lockers behind Casa Linda on Abbot Kinney are painted to look like giant books. Good disguise ... and it does kind of make one wistful for school days ... Kind of.
To all my little buddies heading back to their desks ... Learn well. And have FUN.
*PS ... Speaking of writing ... this is my 500th Blogtown story. Whoa.
