THE WHEEL SPEAKS ON 2013 – A Hydrant Near You

  1. 1.   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  –  A  Hydrant  Near  You     Hot  Time  In  The  City  Memories:  I  know  many  of  my  friends  back  east  are  dealing   with  temperatures  exceeding  100  degrees  everyday  and  have  been  for  weeks.   Hopefully  you  all  are  staying  cool  especially  looking  out  for  the  babies  and  seniors   and  those  with  disabilities.  I  have  some  memories  about  the  sweltering  heat  that   truly  just  make  me  smile  from  especially  my  time  living  on  Randolph  Avenue  and   the  fire  hydrant.       Between  Claremont  and  Myrtle  Avenues  especially.  Whenever  the  block  got  hot   don't  you  dare  come  walking  around  there  all  brave  like  nothing  was  going  to   happen  to  you  because  absolutely  everyone  that  rolled  through  there  got  soak  and   wet  drenched  in  water  from  the  fire  hydrant.       No  matter  how  cool  you  might  have  thought  you  were  you  got  soaked  and  the  entire   block  would  pick  you  physically  up  off  the  ground  and  put  you  right  in  the  water  no   matter  what  you  had  on  you  knew  not  to  come  through  there  if  you  didn't  want  to   get  wet.  The  hydrant  would  stay  on  for  hours  and  nobody  would  complain  about  the   water  pressure  and  even  the  police  wouldn't  bother  us  it  was  pure  unadulterated   fun.  Every  once  in  a  while  some  tough  Tony  in  a  car  would  drive  up  saying  don't  get   my  car  wet  and  of  course  we'd  totally  submerge  the  car  in  water  but  it  was  all  fun   and  remember  we're  talking  maybe  close  to  40  years  ago  or  more.      
  2. 2. I  know  today  and  these  times  are  different  and  water  definitely  isn't  something  that   can  be  wasted  at  all  and  the  society  and  people  aren't  as  accepting  any  longer  of  just   having  unadulterated  fun.  But  today  for  a  second  if  you're  old  school  close  your  eyes   and  think  about  how  much  fun  the  fire  hydrant  use  to  be  no  matter  what  city  you   may  have  grown  up  in  and  smile.       So  remember  to  drink  plenty  of  fluids  and  watch  out  for  the  small  children  and  those   with  disabilities  remember  to  stay  cool  my  friends  and  when  you  receive  an   opportunity  remember  to  smile  when  you  drive  by  and  see  a  hydrant  near  you.     I  am  praying  for  all  my  friends  and  family  located  especially  in  my  hometown  of   Jersey  City  #prayjcpray  I  know  the  violence  has  been  unbelievable  these  last  few   weeks  please  be  safe.     RIP  to  longtime  friend  as  well  Dawoo  aka  Mousey  remember  life  isn't  short  at  all   some  people  are  just  moving  extremely  to  fast.  Take  your  time  gods  at  work  and  has   a  plan  for  us  all,  peace.     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL   (The  Way  Humanity/Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
