"The Good Old Days"

 

There once was a better place...

A place of youth...

A place of innocence...

Remember when all problems
could be solved by doing


Eeny Meeny Mino Mo?

Remember being afraid of Cooties?

Think really hard...

Go back to a better place...

Before the violence, before the drugs...


Before the street gangs and the thugs...

We weren't concerned about anything...

Our biggest fear was a bumble bee sting...

Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...


When our favorite toy was a G. I. Joe...

Superman and Barbies were really big too

There was always something fun to do....

When little girls didn't like boys...

When they would rather play with their Cabbage Patch Kid Toys...

When we played Hide And Go Seek
and Simon Says...


When our favorite candy was Pez.

Mother May I?, Marco Polo, Red Rover...

When any problem could be solved with a
"Do Over!"


Chocolate milk, school lunch...

Kool-aid, Captain Crunch...

If you told a lie, you'd eventually admit it...

Playing baseball in the field..
"You hit it, you git it!"


No worries, no troubles, no bills, no debts...

When we only smoked candy cigarettes...

Jaw Breakers, Bubble Gum, & Blowpops...


No belly-button rings, just shorts and
flip flops...


Watching Saturday morning cartoons...

When our favorite weapons were
water balloons...


When we were never worried about our hair...

When there was no backing out of
a Double-Dog-Dare!


Catching lightning bugs and crickets...

If you saw an empty can you had to kick it.

Jumpin' down the steps, jumpin' on the bed...

Climbing trees, standing on your head...

Hula Hoops, Pillow fights...

Chiggers and mosquito bites...

Playin' wiffle ball till you're out of breath...


Being tickled to death...

When late at night we would pray

For just one more snow day...

Drinkin' from the water hose,


Trying to get a spoon to stick to your nose...

Going to Mamaw's house, watchin' Ole Yeller...

Who did it?, the Smeller's the Feller!

Bedtime stories, counting sheep...

On Christmas Eve you couldn't sleep...

At recess they would turn us loose...

For hopscotch, dodgeball, and
Duck Duck Goose...


Monkey bars, swings, and see-saws...

Tennis shoes and over-alls.

It was a time of simpler things...

Like playgrounds and tire swings...

Where are these things that we left behind?

They're not really so hard to find.

Youth is nothing more than a state of mind!

Treasure the small wonders of life:

The innocence of youth, the beauty of nature,

The strength of love, and the power of friendship.

Keep thinking of the OLD DAYS

Be happy and stay YOUNG ! ! !

God Bless to all have a nice day.
