I remember sleeping out in the back yard during the summer with friends. We would listen to our radio on CKLW out of Detroit and listen to the mystery theater. We would run around and act stupid most of the night until we plum gave out.
I remember when I was about 10 my brother, a friend and I went to the river to go fishing. We were heading back, walking the railroad tracks. After a while an engine came down the tracks. The engineer stopped and asked us if we wanted a ride to our drop off point. Boy were we thrilled! he told us all about the engine and how his shift normally worked. I'll bet that doesn't happen today.
I remember walking across town (probably 7 or 8 miles) and being given a ride. I was about 14 at the time. This happened quite a bit.
I remember neighbors making cookies or candy apples and passing them out to the neighborhood kids. If you did that now they would probably accuse you of trying to poison them!
What do you remember?
