    There’s something you never see kids do anymore… and if you did, you can bet the parents would require crash helmets and knee pads!

    Sad but so true. Parents today have kids living in a bubble.
    I loved doing that on the swings.

    I like Red’s idea of a swinging weekend!

    I can do that also and not get sick. After all, I’m a figure-skater. Spinning is what we figure-skaters do best!

    I thought wearing spangles was what figure-skaters did best?

    I used to do that all the time, and never got sick. Now I have trouble getting up from a chair without getting dizzy.

    Loved doing that! I’d get sick now.

    I miss “Red Rover”, snowball fights, sandlot baseball, marbles anywhere and all the other non-PC stuff.

    Worse, I can’t do ’em anyway.

    At least we had ‘em. We have kids on our block who actually are outside shooting hoops, riding bikes, playing with radio-controlled cars (WITH their Dad!). Wish they could the things you mention, too, but they can’t get too far from their houses. Can’t blame the parents.

    When I was a kid we would spend all day in the woods or riding bikes and be miles from home without adult supervision or the need for the adults to worry where we were or what we were doing. Too bad the innocence and freedom has been lost.

    In those days every adult watched out for the kids, and if you did something you weren’t supposed to, mom would know before you got home.

    In that position, with your head sticking out from the swing, it’s hard to whip your head around to reduce the effect of the rotation and not get dizzy.

    We were easily amused back then…

    Oh yeah, Mom hated hearing the phone ring.
    :-) I always survived but poor Mom…
