Blast from the Past

You know how sometimes, things just pop into your head. It might be a song or something that you or someone else said or did. Well there I was, just sitting there, when POP!, there it was.

When I was a little kid. This was a long time ago. You know, when you walked up hill to school, both ways. When cars had steering wheels that were as big as a full sized spare tire. When we didnt have air conditioning. You know what I am talking about. Well we didnt have air conditioning and the summer was really hot. The mind of a small kid is a strange place because there are always games to be played. Back to really hot! There were more that one thing to do on a really hot day. Go to the pool, soak in a tub, in the yard, lay on the basement floor. My all time favorite was to play artic explorer. This involved dressing up in all of your winter clothing and then trudging around during the hottest part of the day. It was lots of fun if you could get a whole group because you could tie the group together with a rope. Wait for it! So they didn't get lost. We sure had a good time with this. And when you took the coat and boots off. You sure were cool.

Make of it, What you will
