    I would’ve thought Nelson to be eight or ten.

    And sometimes he still acts like he’s eight
    and a half.

    It was a different time…no seat belts, no special car seats, no pull along bicycle carts, no jogging strollers..it is a wonder we survived!

    My Dad said stuff exactly like that…
    I remember him measuring me,
    when I was 4 foot something…

    I said that sounded pretty tall,
    but he told me no, cos when he was my height he was a whole head taller…


    I puzzled over that for ages.

    Not everyone did survive… but these who didn’t aren’t commenting on gocomics, for some reason.

    My friend used to ride her 4 year old brother on the package seat behind her seat on the bike…with her mom’s permission. He was told only to “hold on”: Another friend rode her little sister on her bike’s handlebars. Nobody thought anything of it. Actually, I’ve wondered about those bike helmets. I never fell on my head but scraped my knees and elbows a lot along with ripping up sleeves and pant legs.

    In snow…year round.

    I played on farm equipment when I was a kid. Got a few stitches, but no broken bones or worse.

    I got to play ‘mechanic’ with my dad … he was always having to fix something on a car. Also got to play Eskimo in winter … was a place where BIG snow drifts formed. We’d get a refrigerator carton (they came wrapped in cardboard then) and dig out a place in the drift and put the carton inside.
    It was my mom who went 5 mile to school on skis .. uphill, both ways.

    You brought back memories. Actually, I DID fall on my head, scrapped it up pretty bad. We were riding our bikes down “suicide hill.” There was a curve at the bottom. I was going too fast to make that curve, so I hit the brakes. The bike stopped, I didn’t. Went over the front of my bike and landed on my head. It’s a wonder I survived. But they say ‘only the good die young’ so here I am – still.

    A carton? Hah you were lucky…
    We use to make tunnels in the drifts.
