A Magic Guy -
Can’t be a whole lot goofier, I guess.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I started driving in ’71 and remember bridges charging a quarter.
At this point, I doubt that many people even remember why the “At Home” was added to the title. Might as well go back to “Adam,” and do some work on the header.
And being outdoors leads to creativity. We either made up games or were sort-of taught them by the bigger kids. Even established games are organized now. Gone are the days when baseball meant finding four big rocks and putting them into an approximation of a diamond shape. So, now I have to have the occasional skin cancer surgery, but I sure don’t regret those years in the sun.
Yup, ’54 here. Amazing that we survived when you consider all of our fun is now considered bad parenting, and in some cases, illegal.
Ahhh, a young guy.
School populations have increased many times over. My graduating class had 78 kids. The same school last year had over 300. It’s not easy to build relationships in a situation where you have maybe one class with someone. Everybody knew everybody in my school. Both my kids graduated with about 600 others. Neither of them have been in touch with any of them. It’s true that your college friendships are the ones that last, but I’m still in touch with a bunch of high school friends.
This is the first I’ve heard about the hose restriction. So, what’s a kid supposed to do while running around and playing outside? Oh, wait…..they don’t play outside anymore, I guess…..
Anybody read “Lola” today? Same joke.
Woah! I had a friend in high school (1960s) named Betty Barney and I never made that connection before today! Weird….
