I would have to say ages 6-9.
We lived in a trailer park, but back then I neverunderstood the concept of money.
My mother was happy and married. I got my first bike.
I knew every single kid in a 6 block radius.
Bike rides through the bush trails- 10 kids deep, catching crawfish in the creek, building tree forts, meeting up with my crush at the park and
playing on the tire swing.
playing outside till 10 pm with all the other neighbourhood kids.
coming home to find all their parents sitting around a camp fire in my back yard, drinking, socializing and having a fun time.
That always meant we all got to play together into the late hours or until we fell asleep after being told to stay in the house so they could have
If you remember the tv show “The Wonder Years” looking back at that time in my life, it was pretty much like that, except in the 80’s.
Saturday morning cartoons and the Atari 2600.
Those were the days back then man.
Going to the corner store with a note to buy my mom a pack of cigarettes.
I was always allowed to spend a dollar on candy.
A buck on candy! WHAT!? A whole dollar to myself so I can buy candy?
Man, you could fill one of the little brown paper bags to the top, filled with candy and still have 10 cents left over.
Those were truly the times back then man. The absolute best, most cherished memories of my childhood.
I’d give it all up to go back to those days.
