A River Runs Through It





In Canterbury Village there is a small passage of water between Coblestone drive and Cape Cod way known to many as Cape Cod Creek... This was the Concord creek of my youth ...We had a rope tied way up in the Oak tree and the swing ride out over the creek was awesome...My dog and I spent alot of time there... Many kids would be there after school or on a saturday...This same stretch of creek runs under the street at Cape Cod way and flows into Nature park which is also accessible by the trail there at Cape Cod...These two stretches of the creek were completely different places...Growing up there in Canterbury Village your Mom knew the difference between Nature park and The Creek... This little stretch of Canterbury Village where A River Runs Through It   was   The Creek...  Did you grow up here in Concord?    If so which stretch of our many creeks was Your Creek ?

My creek was the same as yours Smokey. Matter of fact I was right beside you. Remember all the parties the older kids used to have down there. I think we went to a kegger or two down there in our teenage days. One time officer Bender I think was his name lost his transmission on that Manhole that sticks up down there while chasing my brother and his friends. How about that time we were down there and we had to hide until those robbers finished robbing that house on Cobblestone. Those were crazy days!!! It is getting crazy again around here in a Wild Wild West kind of way. At this very moment I am listening to the CPD looking for a HM in the Mobile Home Park off San Miguel. The bird is in the air as well. The HM had a ski mask on and shot someone in the foot on Detroit. Dam gang bangers. Remember when we used to yell Cho Los at them when they stood in little gangs at the park? They’d be shooting at us now days!!!
