    Thumbs up To All The Kids Who Were ...






    TO ALL THE KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE
    1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's!


    First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they
    carried us.

    They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

    Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored
    lead-based paints.

    We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we
    rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took
    hitchhiking.

    As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.

    Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.
    We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.

    We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE
    actually died from this.

    We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because

    WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!

    We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

    No one was able to reach us all day And we were O.K.

    We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down
    the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the
    bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

    We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no
    99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell
    phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat
    rooms..........WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

    We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
    lawsuits from these accidents.

    We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

    We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
    made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

    We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

    Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't
    had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

    The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of They
    actually sided with the law!

    This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers
    and inventors ever!

    The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

    We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

    HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

    And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS!

    You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good.

    and while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were.

    Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

    You know.... this was refreshing and yet, somewhat depressing when you stop to think just how things have digressed since we were kids.

    I don't know about running with siccors but I'm definately gonna run through the yard barefoot when I get home
    NEVER write a check with your mouth that you can't cash with your ASS!!

    I can run faster mad than you can scared

    Hot dog now isn't that the truth. Wonder if the kids born in the last 15 - 20 years could even survive back in the good old days.

    Like the man said, natural selection is being cut off by overprotective parents. when we were growing up, the kid who swallowed to many marbles didn't get to have kids of his own in 20 years.
    It's humbling to start fresh. It takes a lot of courage. But it can be reinvigorating. You just have to put your ego on a shelf & tell it to be quiet. - J.R. Payette

    That would explain our erratic behavior.


    I used to eat lead as a kid, who knew?
