Signs of the Times

How did any of us survive 'childhood'?  :shocked: :shrug:

Don't bother walking a mile in my shoes. That would be boring. Try spending 30 seconds in my head. That will freak you right out!!

  Yup, and they turned into "the greatest generation",  today protected young people require safe areas and cry rooms when they feel intimidated or offended, and our military is having to defend it's position on transgender enlistments.

  Please don't get me started.

Funny.  I'm down at rendezvous right now and the kids are a little lost the first day.  But it's not very long before they forget their electronic devices and TV and start little play groups meeting new and old friends.  Soon it looks like Little House on the Prarie  as they get going with old time games.  Tag.  Climbing the big oaks.  Rolling hoops with stick through the commons laughing and squealing.  Rhis is what summer camp should be
huh?

Glad to hear that Tony.  I was imagining they all sat around in groups ignoring each other while working feverishly on their devices.

I wonder if kids still play kick the can and spin the bottle?

It's a miracle I survived recess!  I took some wicked spills off of the swings and monkey bars when I was a kid, only my pride was hurt.

Teens can shoot BP with a parent present Graylon.  A lot of kids are hustling bucks to buy stuff with.  Taking people's garbage.  Fetching firewood.  Run to the general  store.  Even taking messages to other campers..

More power to the parents who raise husslers like that. Those kids are generally a hundred times better off later in life.

An astute observation and I agree totally.....so,  :welcome: to the campfire, Bacher!   It would help us get to know you a little faster & better if you would go to 'Introductions' and tell us a little about yourself.  Nobody bites here......we still argue, but no biting. ;)
