    Ahh, kids. [face_laugh]


    OK, here's some spam I got yesterday -> for the oldbies;

    If you can remember most or of these, then you have LIVED!
    For anyone who may need a break from their "grown up"
    life..

    Before the Internet and DVDs.
    Before shootings, stabbings, joy-riders and crystal meth...
    Before SEGA or Super Nintendo. Way back...


    I'm talking about hide and seek in the park.

    The corner dairy, hopscotch, go carts, cricket in front of the
    rubbish bin...

    Skipping, handstands, footy on the best lawn in the street ...


    Bullrush, go home stay home, slipnslide, the trampoline with water
    on it ...

    hula hoops, pogo sticks, jumping in enormous puddles, mud pies ...

    and building dams in the gutter.

    Summer lasted all holidays and it hardly rained,
    and when it did you would see half your class at the pictures.
    The smell of fresh cut grass and making birds nests on the school
    field.

    "Big bubbles no troubles" 'with hubba bubba bubblegum.

    A choc-top Mr Whippy cone on a warm summer night after you've
    chased him 'round the block.

    When 20 cents worth of mixed lollies was a meal and smoking fags
    was really cool.

    Watching cartoons, short commercials ...

    The Thunderbirds, Scooby-do, Captain Caveman, Hong Kong Phooey,
    The Mickey Mouse Club, Josie and the pussycats and ...

    heeeey heeeeey heeeeeeey it's Faaaaaaat Albert!

    And staying up late on a long weekend and watching the Sunday
    Horrors.

    When around the corner seemed far away, and going into town seemed
    Like going somewhere.

    A million mozzie bites, wasp and bee stings.

    Sticky fingers. Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians.

    Riding bikes and catching tadpoles.

    Swimming in the neighbours pool, drawing all over the road with
    chalk.

    Climbing trees. Walking to school, no matter what the weather.
    Running till you were out of breath.

    Laughing so hard that your Stomach hurt.

    Jumping on the bed, pillow fights ...

    Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for the
    giggles.

    Being tired from playing ... remember that?

    The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team.

    Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.

    Eating jelly crystals, making homemade lemonade.

    There were two types of sneakers - girls and boys.

    You knew everyone in your street - and so did your parents!

    You would rollerskate everywhere all day.

    It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

    You didn't sleep a wink on Christmas eve.

    When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.

    When 20c was decent pocket money and 50c was rich.
    When nearly everyone's mum was at home when the kids got there
    from school.
    It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.

    When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner
    at Cobb and Co with your parents. When any parent could discipline any
    kid, feed him and use him to carry groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it.

    When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to
    that which awaited a misbehaving student at home.

    Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of
    drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a
    much bigger threat! And some of us are still afraid of them!!!

    When you spoke to adults by calling them Mr or Mrs whoever, and Aunty or Uncle rather than their first names.
    Didn't that feel good?

    Remember when ... decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny- miney-
    mo"

    "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

    "Money issues" were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly".

    The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was boy/girl
    germs, and the worst thing in your day was having to sit next to one.
    Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot or pea shooter.

    Nobody was prettier than your Mum.

    Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.

    Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable vitamin C.

    Ice cream was considered a basic food group.

    Going to the beach and catching

    Who do you mean when you say "original Mickey Mouse Club"??

    Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon by any chance - now they were the real Mouseketeers. :D


    There's rumors of a Fat Albert live-action movie ...and the less said about that the better. :(
