We also would get our mouths washed out with soap and go to bed without dinner and get the wooden or metal spoon across our bare azz. Today that would be consider attempted murder for the soap and no dinner and the spoon or belt across the azz would be assault with a deadly weapon. When I was young MTV just came out as did Nintendo and Atari. We might have played for 20 minutes while having lunch then it was back outside riding the dirt bikes, playing war with cap guns, shooting BB guns, swimming in every pool in the neighborhood in one afternoon and not wanting to come in and go to bed at 9:00 at night. We wanted to stay up and OUTSIDE all night if we could. To this day I cannot stand being in doors. As soon as I get out of work it OUTSIDE for me regardless of weather.
