    The kids weren’t wosses back then either.

    Thanks, Dusty. You just described my childhood, except I made slingshots and hopped a freight train to get out to our swimming hole.

    If those kids had seen a lawyer at the dump, would they have used him for target practice?

    I’m 73 so I can say all of that was true, but we lived in a very different world than what surrounds us now.

    Used to play in an abandoned rock quarry being used as a dump. Had fun throwing the used fluorescent tubes in to watch them break. That’s when is wasn’t climbing around in the upper reaches of our old barn. Somehow I’ve survived 10 times longer than I should have.

    We’d be gone for hours, no phones then so Mum couldn’t call, bikes took us all over the town, but somehow we’d always be back on time for supper.

    I just found my BB gun. I hadn’t even remembered where it ended up, but my Dad stashed it in a corner closet. 1954 Daisy Red Ryder. Before they left Michigan.
