Sometimes at night I sit and think back on the good old days ,Gran ma's biscuits,Pork chops and apple sauce.. I look back to the times when I was
younger and had so much fun just being a kid and loving life. Catching tadpoles in a pond, flying a kite on Saturday morning, riding my bike around
the block and loving my siblings.. I used to love taking things apart and putting them back together just for the fun of it. ahh, I was such a cool
kid...Man, I miss those days...My first Mini bike..now that was cool, gas was 22 cents a gallon and we could ride anywhere...used to take my .22 with
me and shoot rodents and if I saw a cop, they would plink off a few with me...heck, i got stopped by a cop one time on my mini bike ans he said where
you kids going? I said "fishing at the pond" and he was like.."meet you there" lol...ahh yea..the good "REAL" days..I miss them....ah well, I
got nothing left to give but this video..I hope you enjoy it...
Oh man that brought back some memories
My best mate and I cycling to the local quarry with air rifles strapped to our backs. Popping off a few rats and catching newts to gross out our
What a great way to start the day.
Wading in the mud to catch frogs, finding a technicolor field of wild flowers, hiking in to the best trout pond for dinner all things enjoyable
from childhood that I share with my boys still. The world is a beautiful place full of wonderful experiences. Stay safe please, and know that innocent
goodness still exist in this crazy world.
Fantastic days of old. Making 'dens' in the woods. Crossing rivers and making rope swings. Always out on on bikes. The next generation of kids wont
know about a lot of this. They will look back and remember being on facebook, Or xbox live. Or burying there heads in laptops or phones.
Saw a movie once... forget the title. In there a character said, "If you're really lucky you'll live to grow old, have many fond memories and sit
and remember them."
You are still that boy or girl and those fond memories are the proof of your humanity. Everyone has them, they are part of what makes humanity so
Don't look back at it so much as a "lost kingdom" as the fun you had while living it. Doing that on a regular basis and enjoying it is what prompts
the mind to remember other things we have done. Kind of like rebuilding a library. I had a most interesting and sometimes wild youth that I love to
sit and ponder sometimes.
I can remember, back in those days, my friends and I cupping our hands and drinking water straight from a spring fed stream. It was sooo good. My one
pal said you knew the water was "okay" if it had minnows and tadpoles in it. Seemed to be true...no one got sick from it. Wouldn't wanna attempt
I can remember laying on my back and watching the clouds go by...the sky was so clear and blue...didn't look so polluted and smeary as now. The way
the air smelled so fresh after a nice spring rain...the smell of the grass after it got mowed. Fields of wildflowers and less macadam lots. There were
so many lady bugs and butterflies back then. Less city light pollution made sky watching an exciting adventure....now, not so much. Memories of days
gone bye...seems so much has changed...or was it just me.
I seem to have lost that feeling to.
Motivation and a purpose in life.
Trying to re-invent myself,but it's just not happening yet.
How do you re-invent yourself at 48 years old ?
Your description mirrors mine when I was young.
My Honda Z50 mini bike.
Man,I was indestructible then.
I think I used up most of the lives I have,you know,like the 9 lives of a cat and have realized I have one card left.

May Allah Guide You to the Straight Path
Hey, good luck with that. Pity you can't enjoy the NOW moments like the rest of us. Mores the pity you think you were put on this earth only to wish
to get off it.
