I stopped to chat the other day with the guy painting out the graffiti attack on the wall behind Target in Ocean Shores. I said, ‘I guess the local teenagers get bored when the surf is down’. He replied that the security camera showed that one of the kids wasn’t even a teenager, and was only ten years old. I made the usual oldies’ comment about the lack of parental guidance these days.

‘Ha!’ he snorted. ‘I heard of a couple who actually takes their kid out to show him the ropes.’

I guess the family that sprays together, stays together.
