Blog challenge # 22

Write about something you did during summer that kids today-for better or for worse-probably don't do anymore.

We pretty much just were kids, rode bike, went fishing, played ball, played tree tag, marbles, kick the can, just the normal stuff that kids did way back then. We left the house first thing in the morning and had to be home at noon to eat lunch. There was the fire whistle that went off at noon so there were no excuses about being late. There was also a 5:00 whistle that went off so we knew when to be home for supper. After waiting 1/2 hour after eating, and we had a digtal clock on the tv, so there was no way of leaving early, we went outside to play until 8 or 9 o'clock. Our parents didn't have to worry about us, they knew pretty much where we were and didn't have to worry about someone kidnapping us.

Those were the days huh Colleen?! I can still hear Dad's whistle in my mind! We didn't have watches or cellphones or anything, but we knew that when we heard that whistle we'd better come fast or else! :)
