I remember all that, and drinking from the hose, lighting bullrushes down at the passion pit, wearing my roller skate key around my neck with my steady's ring, wearing two different shoes, wearing my sweaters backwards down to get a cherry coke at the local hangout.  I remember being a carhop at the "Dog and Suds" and rollerskating to the cars to take their order.  I remember swamp water, which I stil love to this day.

Oh but those really were great days.  I am sure my Mother, and her Mother before her had a completely different list, and said the exact same thing as I am saying today.

Great post Rex.

Oh I can remember sitting on my grandpa's lap as he told his stories of his childhood. This just took me town memory lane. Thank you for putting a smile on my face.

I'm only 15, so I can't say I've known of any of this.  I wish I had though, it seems like a much better world.

I remember sitting on my porch with my grandfather, listening to the tales of old.

The grandfathers of the neighborhood drinking beer, smoking and forever bold.

I remember the tales of the 'True childhood'

The- Walking a mile just to pick cotton, a nickle a day.

To going down to the corner store to buy a gallon of gas, a soda pop and a candy bar for one dollar.

They all say "Those where the days, kids these days have no respect, no sense of loyalty or dignity.'

I grew up with Sega, Nintendo, where you went to the principal office it was a joke.

Where in middle school you were offered a smoke.

Gameboys and Ipods, electronic toys oh the joys

Days of my old? Complaining that the cables out.

Suns too hot, and the parents shout. Leave the house, no girls around.

'Cause they all with the older boys. That's my childhood, always will be. You'll never see. Those of us that lived those days? Lived a real childhood, in the new generation ways.

Oh the time before personal computers
when accountants used to sleep on their desks
while closing the month's books.

When a man did the "right thing" forever
even though it was by the wrong woman.

When death before fifty was a lot more common . . .
Even children.

When a black man or immigrant Eastern European
had to watch himself a half hour south of town
in the land of KKK.

The arms race, the USSR.
Duck and cover.

Care to add to this list . . .

The good old days were good
because you were young and dumb
and had no idea what was going on
around you.

If it meant I could be young again, of course I would go back,
otherwise good riddance.
