HOW DID ONE SURVIVE IN THE 70's , 80's and 90's .
We had no seat belt rules or air bags ,
Our baby prams had beautiful lead based colours ,
No such things as tamper proof bottle tops ,
Kitchen cupboards opened easy as there were no safety locks ,
Cycling was great , no helmets , no knee / arm pads ,
With an ice lolly stick in the spokes to make it sound like a motor bike ,
We only drank tap water because bottled water was still a mystery ,
We collected rubbish , to make things ,
and we were fearless when our bikes had no brakes going down hill ,
We were allowed to climb trees AND jump down , it was fun ,
We played out for hours as long as we got back before dark ,
We walked to school or rode our bikes , no need for a big 4 wheel drive car protection ,
We had no mobile phones , but we always managed to find each other ,
We lost teeth , broke bones , got cuts / bruises and bl00dy noses ,
We ate everything in sight , cakes , bread , sweets , yet we stayed skinny by messing about ,
If one of us had a can of coke , we all had a swig of it , we were not bothered about germs ,
We didn't have playsations , mp3 , x box , i pod , 999 t.v. channels , mobiles , laptops , chat rooms and internet ,
WE HAD REAL FRIENDS ,
When we called on friends , we could just walk in their house , no worries,
We could be loose in the big bad worls , without body guards ,
We played with sticks and stones ,
We played cowboys and indians without offending anyone ,
We were allowed to fail , no need for doctors , psychiatrists , councelors to analize ,
We had success , freedom , disapointments and responsibilities ,
Most of all ,,, we learnt to respect each other ,
ARE YOU FROM THIS GENERATION ??
DO YOU REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS ??
Have A Nice Day Everyone .
