Bear Hunts and Drive BY Birthday Parties. I have seen both these phenomenons in our neighborhood.

Drive By Birthday Party
I noticed the cars coming into the neighborhood and at first I was a little put off. "Who, " I thought, "Would be having a group of teenagers over at a time like this"?
I watched and they lined up along side the curb. Every dang one of them on their cell phone. Then the birthday kid - age about 16 - came out and sat in a lawn chair in his front yard, and all his friends drove by and shouted happy birthday. In five minutes it was all over and the kids all went home.
Made me smile.

Bear Hunt. We were asked to participate in a Bear Hunt. We took our Teddy Bear - the one I gave my wife 33 years ago - and we put him in the window. I saw that lots of home had done this. Some bears are in the window and others sitting out front. One was peeking out from behind a porch post.
At 6PM the parents of bored youngsters drive through the neighborhood and count up the number of bears they find!

Life goes on!
