    Talking Saw This & Thought of You!

    I PROMISE YOU THIS IS WORTH READING AS ITS SO TRUE...........



    Just for a minute, forget everything stressful and read this...............

    Close your eyes and go back in time...
    Before the Internet or the Apple Mac.
    Before semi-automatics, joyriders and crack....
    Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...


    Way back........


    I'm talking about Hide and Seek in the park.


    The corner shop.


    Hopscotch.


    Butterscotch.


    Skipping.


    Handstands.


    Beano, Dandy, Buster, Twinkle and Dennis the menace.


    Roly Poly.


    Hula Hoops, jumping the stream, building dams.


    The smell of the sun and fresh cut grass.


    Bazooka Joe bubble gum.

    An ice cream cone on a warm summer night from the van that plays
    a tune - Chocolate or vanilla or strawberry or maybe Neapolitan or perhaps a screwball.

    Wait......


    Watching Saturday morning cartoons....short commercials


    The Double Deckers, Road Runner, He-Man, Zeebedee
    Tiswas or Swapshop?, and 'Why Don't You'? - or staying up for Doctor Who.


    When around the corner seemed far away and going into town seemed
    like going somewhere.


    Earwigs, wasps, stinging nettles and bee stings.

    Sticky fingers.

    Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians, and Zorro.

    Climbing trees.

    Building igloos out of snow banks.

    Walking to school, no matter what the weather.

    Running till you were out of breath, laughing so hard that you

    stomach hurt.

    Jumping on the bed. Pillow fights.

    Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause fo

    giggles.

    Being tired from playing....remember that?

    The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team.

    Water balloons were the ultimate weapon

    Football cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle.

    Choppers and Grifters


    Eating raw jelly. Orange squash ice pops.

    Remember when...

    There were two types of trainers - girls and boys, and
    Dunlop Green Flash - and the only time you wore them at school

    was for P.E.

    You knew everyone in your street - and so did your parents. It

    wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

    You didn't sleep a wink on Christmas eve.

    When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.

    When 25p was decent pocket money

    When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

    When nearly everyone's mum was at home when the kids got there.

    It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.

    When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner
    at a real restaurant with your parents.

    When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him or use him to carry groceries and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.

    When being sent to the head's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home.

    Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it wasn't because of

    drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs etc. Parents and grandparents were
    a much bigger threat! - and some of us are still afraid of them!!

    Didn't that feel good?

    Just to go back and say, Yeah, I remember that!

    Remember when....


    Decisions were made by going " Ip Dip Dog Sh*t "

    "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

    Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly".

    The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was germs.

    And the worst thing in your day was having to sit next to one.

    It was unbelievable that 'British Bulldog 123' wasn't an Olympic

    event.

    Having a weapon in school, meant being caught with a catapult.

    Nobody was prettier than Mum.

    Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.

    Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable aspirin.

    Ice cream was considered a basic food group

    Getting a foot of snow was a dream.

    Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest
    Protectors


    If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED.

    Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their "grown up" life...

    I DOUBLE-DARE YOU
