Do you know every nook and cranny of your neighborhood? How about UNDER your neighborhood?
Do you let your kids walk home from school? It’s just a few blocks, right? What lurks in the shadows? In the bushes? Or scarier yet, under the bushes?
Or is it all just happy-go-lucky Huckleberry Finn and exploring and adventuring in your own neighborhood? When do you know the difference? Maybe your kids know. Maybe they don’t. How will you learn?
It began as a simple walk home, the same one we did every day after school. But our dog’s ball went into something of a hole—or was it a cave? Maybe a tunnel. But are there tunnels in the city? The ball was pretty close to the entrance, but just far enough to be a little spooky. Should we just forget it?
