106. it's funny how unsupervised we were as kids
Edited on Sun May-07-06 05:16 PM by tigereye
my kid has very little freedom to wander as we did in the small town I am from. Of course we live near the city.

we used to:

set occasional small fires from the burncan
walk on the railroad tracks (put a nickel on em to see em get smushed)
climb under the bridges above the town creek
be gone all day, pretty much and come home for dinner
throw a lot of rocks
play with M-80s and caps
hide in the tunnels meant for storm overflow
sleep out on the front porch with our friends


as a teen, say I was going to the nearby mall and drive to see our boyfriends in the city 30 miles away...drive cars with bad brakes...cars full of teens....


those were different times! I think parents just figured everything would be ok. And usually, it was. ;)
