The latest on real estate recordings and new technology from the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds in Lowell
This year’s inductee into the National Toy Hall of Fame is….the Stick. Yeah, the old fashion stick. Christmas is still six weeks away, but I can hear my grand-daughter now…
Me: Honey, what do you want me to buy you for Christmas?
Grand-daughter: Papa I want an XBOX 360 Live with Halo so I can fight the Aliens with a my own semi automatic pistol, Alien Needler gun and a fierce rocket launcher. What do you think, Can I get one?”
Me: Well, I was actually thinking I would get you… “a stick”.
Grand-daughter: “A Stick”, you mean like the kind that fall off trees?
Me: Yeah or a stick can also be a broom handle…that kind of “stick”.
Grand-daughter: Can I use a stick as a weapon to defend earth against its sworn enemies and find the secrets of the Covenant?
Me: No, but you can play baseball and street cricket with a stick.
Grand-daughter: Why, wouldn’t I play baseball with a baseball bat and cricket with a cricket bat like you’re supposed to? I don’t want a stick for Christmas.
Me: But honey, the stick has been placed in the National Toy Hall of Fame. I played with a stick when I was a kid.
Grand-daughter: Is that because there was no electricity then, so there were no Xbox’s?
Me: No…we had great times with “a stick” in those days.
Grand-daughter: OK, I’ve got an idea…you give me an Xbox 360 with Halo for Christmas and I’ll give you a stick!
Me: I think I’ll pass.
