Exactly and I don't ever remember get sick because of pulling fresh fruit from wherever however I do remember a stomach ache a time or two from eating too many apples.The simple things we enjoyed would definitely be frowned upon today, picking/pulling fresh fruit/veg giving it a cursory wipe on the trousers and eating it, climbing trees [at 10 yrs old 35 ft up in the air was marvellous] and we never bothered about falling, we found a stout tree growing over a disused quarry [about 120 ft deep] found a rope, tied it to a thick branch overhanging the side and made ourselves a swing out, [we didn't know about stress testing the rope or branch] but it was fun, going out on our bikes [i was about 13] on a sunny Sunday 40 miles to the nearest seaside coming home after dark, we didn't have gaming machines or laptops, oh and telly started at 5pm finished at 10 pm Mon-Sat and 9pm Sunday, the rest of the time Radio was our home entertainment, By modern standards we would be considered deprived, but none of us ever had childhood depression. We were healthier and developed our own sense of self-preservation.
Getting old hell we are old I am anyway.Yep, Remember those days Tells you how old we're getting
Never stayed inside most of the time we were outdoors. We made our own entertainment. No streaming anything unless it was in the stream near our home.
Lots of memories.
Not many if any because most of them seem to stay inside their house on their cell phones and game consoles and social media.How many of today's mobile phone controlled screen watching youngsters will look back at how they spent their childhood with such fondness , if they ever reach our age.
