    We didn’t lack fun times indoors, and outdoors in the nice clean sunshine instead of glued to some ipod with someone’s made up games…we made our own games

    Shoot mud-daubers with my Red Ryder air rifle.
    Rebuild my car. Customize my bicycle. Listen to American music played by a band in the bandstand next to the courthouse. You know, fun stuff!

    Play stickball in the street with the other neighborhood kids. Ride my bike around town. Play in the park on the swingsets/monkey bars/ carousel. Hide and Seek in the twilight hours, untl our parents called us in for dinner. Southern California in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

    this reminds me of a weird al yankovic song: good old days
    sometimes i think back to when i was younger
    life was so much simpler then
    dad would be up at dawn,he’d be waterin’ the lawn
    or maybe goin’ fishin’ again
    oh,and mom would be fixin’ up something in the kitchen
    fresh biscuits or hot apple pie
    the years go by but the memory stays
    those were the good old days

    We played baseball at Mr. O’Donnel’s Field. Rode our bikes all over town (with no helmets or knee/elbow pads (and put baseball cards or playing cards in the spokes to make motorcycle sounds — probably lost a Mickey Mantle rookie card that way). Smoked corn silk cigarettes. Tried to fool Cindy Shaffer with our Halloween costumes (even with gloves on and our eyes closed she always guessed us). And without cellphones, we knew when it was time to come home — when the street lights came on, we headed back for 117.
