The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

The Q's "Wheel Appreciation Day"

yet another extraordinary use

Walking back from the Office Depot with three (3) large office chairs in big boxes planted on my hand truck, passing zooming cars and bikes, a man in a wheelchair, a lady with a walker and a large garbage container being easily managed down the sidewalk by a smallish super...I was once again moved to express my gratitude to the wheel.

It is hard to imagine an invention more crucial. It's almost if, in defiance of the time-honored cliche, the wheel keeps reinventing itself every day.

Here's to the wheel. May we all roll through this life with just a wee less effort. (Don't even get me STARTED about the lever...)
