o, my this brings back so many memories - the only thing is we didn't have buses where i was raised - just dirt roads and the store where we got candy gave us a $1 credit during harvest time! WHOOPY! but i do remember the ice cream trucks when i got to visit my aunt who lived in the big city! yes, the drive in was the biggest treat of all times - rare indeed!

I couldn't wear makeup until I was 15.
No dating until that same age.
There was a set bedtime on school nights.
If rules were broken, I was grounded. And it stuck.
My first money I earned was babysitting, It went into the bank.
We ran when we heard the ice cream truck coming.
If we wanted to go somewhere, we rode the bus.
A real family treat was going to the drive in.

I wonder what people accomplish, by hating on modern generations and glorifying the past by pointing out the things they thought were 'better', while ignoring the negative things (except of course "our parents hit us with belts and shoes because they had no clue about parenting")
You know, those people born in the 40's and 50's were so wonderfully raised, had such great lifes and were overall so much better than the people later....that they became the assholes that make life bad today...politicians, dictators, greedy CEOs. Wonderful people growing up in a wonderful time that shaped them to what they are today. What a wonderful world
