Funny sight on the playground

We decided to enjoy the gorgeous summer evening tonight, so we picked up some sandwiches and headed for Commonwealth Lake, a local park with a couple playgrounds and, of course, a lake. While walking along the path to the playground, I got another jarring reminder that things have changed since I was a kid. Lying on the grass in a pile were three kids, probably between about 7 and 10 years old. They were all jostling for position so they could see the screen of some laptop-like contraption, possibly a portable DVD player. A few feet away, there was a swing set and various other playground attractions, but they were happy with their little screen. *Sigh* I think I'll just curl up in my rocking chair with my Geritol now...
