Beanboy asks:

Anybody know what happened to shut down Washington St. Friday morning? Police were redirecting traffic and there were a bunch of police, fire and emegency response vehicles swarming to the area.

Parkway Blog is a new blog by the reporters at the Parkway Transcript. Yesterday, reporter David Harris mused about what you would say to get out of school, after hearing about the kid at the Mozart School who told police he'd been been beaten and kidnapped - so he could get out of a school project.

We live on what is probably one of the quietest streets in the entire city - nothing ever happens here (well, almost nothing). So we don't get many police patrols here. But this afternoon, while upstairs, we saw a patrol car going by, then slowing down. Stopped outside our neighbor's house. A couple minutes later, it was gone.

When old-time Rozzie residents mention "downtown," chances are they mean Roslindale Square, not Park Street. The Square once had everything you'd expect in a downtown: Furniture stores, a movie theater, even a department store.

All, of course, are long gone - victims of the Dedham Mall and the move to suburbia. But the echoes remain. The hulking electric substation on Washington Street reminds you of the trolley that no longer runs. The Rialto Barber Shop recalls the theater that used to sit behind it.

And if you happen to be on the Poplar Street side of Adams Park and look up, past Wapo Taco, you might see the fading echo of the old Parke Snow Chain Department Store - the remains of an ad that once beckoned people getting off the trolley to walk down Corinth to the store (which eventually burned down, to be replaced by what is now the Village Market parking lot).

Buffalo Bo's is a take-out barbecue place on Washington Street, just south of Albano Street. Will report back; Roslindale just hasn't been the same since Tex's stopped doing take-out a few years ago.

As the sun went down yesterday over the Roslindale hills, it sure felt like snow - the sky was close and gray and the air had that "gonna snow" feel. And when I went out around 6:30, "Traffic on the 3s" was reporting "near white-out conditions" on South Shore highways. But this morning, I looked out the window and saw: Lots of brownish green; the only white was the ice left over from the last mini-storm. Wha' happened?

Somebody in Roslindale is deeply offended by the bikini-clad rubber-chicken doggie chew toys in the window of Pet Cabaret on Washington Street:

... He asks how he is supposed to walk his children by our store and explain to them why there are naked chickens in the window. He begs us to remove them so he and his children can walk the streets unmolested by the buxom, suggestive, and latex Henrietta Chicken.

Bruce writes on mAss Backwards that he keeps telling the goddamn kids to stay offa his lawn and they keep ignoring him:

... My wife calls me at work yesterday to tell me that the little shits are at it again. This time they've actually put a CHAIR in my yard, next to the fence, so as to facilitate their climbing over it. I tell her to do nothing about it for now, other than to take the chair and put it in the trash. ...

Road hogs!

Everybody knows the Unwritten Law of Boston Parking: You Shovel It, You Own It. Even Tom Menino is willing to give people 48 hours of cone/chair/bathtub protected space after a storm.

So what to make of the people in Roslindale who are now protecting parts of completely snowless streets - like residents of Knoll (above) and Glendower streets (and no doubt others)? Extra bonus fun: Note the car parked in front of a hydrant.
