  2. In the old days I did the same in Amsterdam when I was twelve years old! The traffic must have been not that heavy in the fifties....

  6. I did this when I was in elementary school...it was a great honor. But then I stopped some cars when I wasn't supposed to and they fired me! Sheesh! She's certainly dressed for the occasion ... can't miss her.

  8. I admire these school crossing patrol workers who are usually very cheerful and helpful in all weathers! At least the people I've met at our children's school were very good!
