ljptexas, 

You took me back....

Oh, how I recall playing in the creek with water moccasin's, and never got bitten. I used to go play with one of the Dallas Cowboy's big dog when he allowed us to, and only in my later years did I learn learn I used to play in the back year ( it was all open, by the creek) oil tycoon, Nasher. I loved growing up where I did, no gated communities and people were famous in my area, but no one bothered them ever. Gone are those days....

Oh, and don't forget about sleeping in the open space of the back window while your parents are driving...no seatbelts and we are all alive!

I can relate to most of these, and it sure brought back some wonderful memories of way back when or as my children call them the olden days.  I tried to let my children do some of these things( especially playing out side) and now my DD is trying to raise hers this way as they are fortunate to have a farm .     Susan
