Thread Name: Help: Little Boxes (Malvina Reynolds) ticky-tacky?
Subject: RE: Ticky-tacky
in about 1971, I flew out of San Francisco airport, sitting on the right side of the plane, and suddenly, there they were! I grabbed my camera and shot 6-7 slides of them....all bare on the hillside and red and green and yellow and ...umm...tacky. Whether or not folks were happy to have them, it sure was obvious why Malvina wrote the song. I'm sure it all could have been done a bit more tastefully.
