Re going out to play and not coming home till dinner time and going out to play after dark...
Try that now and the parents will be prosecuted for child abuse and most likely tossed in the slammer...
Where do I find that time machine to take me back!

Playing Red Light, Green Light in the side yard, working the dairy farm in the summer, riding my bike EVERYWHERE, catching fireflies and putting them in jars for a night light. Flying kites with my Dad.

We were just into the years when parents started being more aware of where their kids were and we only traveled in packs to walk to the store 6 blocks away. My Mom stood at the window the entire time we were gone to wait for us coming back.

And Policemen were our friends, we knew their names and they knew ours.

My fondest childhood memories were those that I spent "working" on our family farm. Terribly hot summers meant sifting through rotten and bug-ridden tomato patches, and yielded the biggest and best 'maters with witch we'd make and can our family vegetable and tomato juices. I remember how the cool soil felt between my fingertips while digging up potatoes. I never knew when there would be potatoes or bugs. Scared the crap out of me everytime. Shucking corn piled so high it blocked sun; churning homemade icecream; paying hide and seek on the farm, and almost always getting locked in the grain silo; my cousin thinking it was cool to dip coffee grounds: HA!

We were poor and we were the only kids in school that didn't have a mom.
