Now & Laters, Charlie Chans, Alexander the Grapes, Lemon Heads, Chik O Stix, Windmill cookies, penny candy, freeze cups, pop rocks.... those were the days.
Double dutch, paper dolls, jacks, patty-cake hand games, Atari, roller skates. Joaning on your friends, freestyling, making up dance routines.... what happened to all the fun of being a kid?
Saturday sprinkler on the corner in the summer, riding bikes on trails. Hide and seek, locust singing, street lights blinking , almost dark, who needed a watch? Time to head home, everybody leaves.
