    Hide and go seek at dusk.

    One speed-bicycles.

    Hopscotch, butterscotch, double dutch.

    Jacks, kickball, and dodge ball.

    Mother May I? Red Rover.

    Hula Hoops, jacks.

    Wax Lips and Mustaches.

    Penny candy in a brown paper bag.

    A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers.

    Catching lightning bugs in a jar.

    Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt.

    An ice cream cone on a warm summer night...

    A cherry coke from the fountain at the corner drug store.

    Running till you were out of breath.

    When the only time you wore sneakers

    was at school, for gym.

    When it took five minutes for the TV to warm up,

    if you even had one.

    When nearly everyone's mom was at

    home when the kids got there.

    When laundry detergent had free glasses,

    dishes or towels hidden inside the box.

    When nobody owned a purebred dog.

    When a quarter was a decent allowance.

    When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

    When girls never kissed on the first date.

    The Draft.

    When your mom wore nylons

    that came in two pieces.

    When every adult had a title as

    Mr., Mrs., Miss., Sir, or Ma'am.

    The Mickey Mouse Club

    When you got your windshield cleaned,

    oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking,

    for free, every time.

    And you got trading stamps to boot!

    And, you didn't pay for air.

    Drive In movies.

    When homework assignments were a daily routine.

    When being sent to the principal's office was

    nothing compared to the fate that awaited a

    misbehaving student at home.

    Sitting on the back porch listening to

    the ballgame on the radio.

    When Sundays were for God and families

    All of the first list except the last item - Sundays were for building things in the shop with Dad, full family weeding sweep of the 1.5 acre garden (which had no decorative flowers), riding my bike to friends houses, or the horse up into the national forest, or working on the tree house network in the wood lot, or skinny-dipping in the creek if it was hot, or my personal favorite - blowing stumps, or boulders, or whatever with Dad.

    I remember the first time I bought a tank of gas - 12 gallons, it cost $2.39, and got an oil check, windshield washed, and tire pressures checked included.

    My first car cost me $50, and I sold it for $75. My first "date" was taking my girl for a picnic in the canyon 3 miles from home, on horseback.

    Anybody remember the old Cushman Trailmaster dirt bikes?
     
  10. School House Rock
    The Super Friends every Saturday
    Martha Quinn
    My first cell phone it was HUGE.
    The Song Remains the Same/The Wall every Saturday Night at the Movies.
    Carburetors on BLOWERS on MOPARS.
    That 200 mile drive just because.

    Standing up in the back seat of grandaddy's dark green1972 Chevy Impala watching the world go by. When I got tired I could lay down in the back window deck behind the seat. Lap belts still folded from the factory.

    Grandaddy pushing me around the garden in the wheel barrel.

    Saturday morning cartoons with a bowl of cereal and my favorite blanket...

    Riding my bicycle/scooter/skateboard EVERYWHERE I went...

    Hangin' at the local outdoor pool ALL day w/no worries and one heckuva bronze tan...

    Camping and fishing with my family, campfires with s'mores and ghost stories...

    Riding my minibike up and down, up and down, up and down the alley, probably driving my neighbors nuts... (HA! No wonder I'm an MBer!)

    Good times, good memories, nice post!
