Thanks to follower and oft-commentator Tempo, we are starting a new feature here at the 'Cave of Cool' - 'When We Were Kids'. It's a chance for all my readers to remind the youngsters out there that we older bloggers came from a very different time than they did. A time before all your fancy EEEElectronics and microwavable pizza snacks.
I invite those who lived back in the stone age to contribute and we will highlight the best ones in future installments.
No going back to the old standards like riding a bike without a helmet or playing lawn darts. Those have been done to death. Here are two examples to get you going.
I hope you are getting the TYPE of stories that I want to hear from you by the examples given.
Tempo talked about how kids today grow up without ever breaking a bone. Unheard of in my day. In fact if we didn't have any breaks by the time we left Kindergarten we were required to break one of our own bones. If we didn't choose then the school administration would choose for us and you just KNEW they wouldn't let you get off with just a broken finger. They would go for the arm or the leg just to learn ya.
That was just the way it was and we liked it.
Hungry Timber wolves lived in the forest we had to walk through to get home. We usually lost a couple of kids along the way but it thinned out the slow and weak of the herd and made us all better runners. When you can outwit an Alpha male wolf pack leader then you know you can handle anything life throws at you.
That was just the way it was and we LOVED it.
