Hillbilly Raider Posted March 10, 2006 Share Posted March 10, 2006 Just lately we have had some pretty hot debates on what is right and what is wrong with the world (mindless vanalism etc) My friend Henry sent me the following today, its a bit long, but bare with it i promise it will make you smile!!! Just for a minute, forget everything stressful and read this.... Go back in time.. Before the internet or the Apple Mac. Before semi-automatics, joy riders and crack... Way back...... I'm talking about Hide and seek in the park the corner shop hopscotch skipping handstands football with an old can fingerbob beano, dandy, buster, twinkle and dennis the menace. Roly poly hula hoops and the smell of the sun and fresh cut grass. Bazooka Joe bubble gum! An ice cream cone on a warm summers night from the van that played a tune- chocolate or vanilla strawberry or maybe neaopitian .. perhaps a screwball. Watching saturday morning cartoons... short comercials, the double deckers, road runner he man tiswas or swapshop and "why dont you?" Staying up to watch Dr who... and when the corner seemed far away and going into town was seen as going somewhere? Earwigs, wasps stinging nettles and bee stings, sticky fingers and cop and robbers. Cowboys and indians, zorro and climbing trees. Walking to school no matter what the weather. Running till you were out of breath and getting a stitch, laughing so much that your stomach hurt. Jumping on the bed, pillow fights, spinning around getting dizzy and falling down was the cause of a fit of giggles. Being tired from playing... remember that? The worst embarrasment was being picked last for a team. Water ballons were the ultimate weapon and playing cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle. Chopers and grifters i'm not finished yet... Eating raw jelly. orange squash ice pops Remember when there were only 2 types of trainers... boys and girls? Dunlop green flash and the only time you wore them was at school for PE.! you knew everyone in your stret and so did your parents. you didnt sleep a wink on Christmas Eve 25p was decent pocket money and you would reach into a muddy puddle for a penny. When being sent to the heads office was nothing compared to what awaited a misbehaving student at home... Parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat Decisions were made by going "ip dip dog s**t" Race issue meant arguing about who could run faster. iT was UNBELIEVABLE that british bulldog was NOT an olympic sport having a weapon at school meant being caught with a catapult and scrapes and brusies were kissed better by your mum who was the prettiest woman in the world.! Taking drugs meant ASPRIN getting a foot of snow was a dream come true. Older siblings were your worst tormentors but the fierces protectors................... If you can rember most or all of these then you have LIVED pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their "grown up life" GO ON.... I DOUBLE DARE YOU!!! i hope this made you smile as much as it did me? Mandy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
