I wasn't fortunate enough to have a barn with hay strewn on the floor available to me, Chopper. We had to make due with jumping off a garage roof into a large bush.

But of course, what most of did and experienced while growing up seem to still be the norm for practically every other culture on this planet...

Remember how we all took our lunches to school in in "non insulated" brown paper bags, or tin lunch pails that stunk to high heaven?

So...Roadfix, I realize why my childhood and yours and your kids for that matter are similar. I see that you are in Michigan. I grew up in the Battle Creek area of Michigan, and I now live near Colorado Springs. We also have lots of things to do in this area. We mountain bike, we go camping, we have done both downhill and cross country skiing, and we hike with our golden retrievers on a regular basis. We have two grown sons that do those things, and also shoot guns of all kinds. I learned how to shoot bb guns at 8 and 22's at 10. My husband and I were both very involved in boy scouts with both boys, and they had camp outs at the Air Force Academy where they were proud to get the below zero patch. I could go on and on, but that would belong in the off topic forum I guess.

Anyway...I left the roast out all day today on the counter to thaw, and I need to go eat it now that I cooked it.

You are right! I am so sorry. I just can't seem to keep everyone straight. It was Goodweed that I was refering to. I guess I should have used the quote function that time and I would have remembered who I was talking to. Goodweed is the one in Michigan!

We also jumped off of rooftops into snowdrifts. Come to think of it, we also made tunnels in the snowdrifts. I hear now that it is dangerous because they might cave in(blah blah blah). Yet another thing Mom did-she sent us out to make tunnels in the heavy snow. She even sent us out with food to have once we made our cave! We would stay in there a long time.

my dad was way ahead of his time regarding food safety. so therefore that is how my mom handled food. i still do most of the things that he thought, made food safe.

Oh snow tunnels and forts ... awesome memories! My dad would bring out real soda (the stuff with sugar, a real treat) and we would make snow cones with real snow. My brother was also known to spend a night or two out there.

That's true for me too, Babe. My Dad was a grocery/meat market owner/operator and he was a stickler for food safety and sanitary conditions. Just the way I grew up, and was trained.
