Toys were built to last back then, now they are built to last at least until the spring then Ma & Pa will have to replace it for Junior who was convinced that if he let it roll downstairs it would survive.

[quote=George Broderick, Jr.;153980]Half the houses on my street (including mine) are "Sears Houses"... there are about two or three basic designs, but they generally all look alike... one of the "features" of a Sears home was a grassy strip down the middle of the driveway... I HATE that *%@#*$! thing! Show of hands... who else has to "mow" their driveway in the summer? Apparently, that was a very popular thing to do back in the beginning of the 20th Century...

We had the strip, but just last year converted to black top. It's easier to shovel snow too!

My neighbor plowed my driveway this past winter and really tore it up! So, I believe we'll be removing the grass strip this Spring.
