Sometimes it is fun to look at items that were around when you were younger and it seems they turn up odd times. Friday I had a meeting at what once was an elementary school over by Route One in Fairfax County, not too far from where I grew up.
Walking into the building I saw an old water fountain. I can remember lining up after recess to get a drink from a fountain like this one. I also remember these fountains being spaced around the National Mall in DC. Next I saw a rusted box on a door for the heating oil delivery man to leave his delivery bills. Inside the building I saw a two-person drinking fountain in what was once the cafeteria. It can be fun to go down memory lane..
