I’d been banging on to The Wife about my disappointment with the Youth of Hamilton North. We had crews replacing broken footpath slabs for about a fortnight yet there’d been no attempt to draw goofy pictures, scrawl initials, put footprints (human, dog or other) or in any way deface the beautiful, smooth, begging-for-it surface of newly laid concrete.
Luckily, Showbag brought this effort on Clyde Street to my attention. It’s not quite what I was hoping for, and I get the sense that this wasn’t written by a 12-year-old boy. Perhaps kids don’t do that any more, or is there an app that does it for them?
