But first, a little sage advice –
I grew up in the 60s, and if we even looked like we were getting a cold, Mum would rub Vicks on our chests. Still love the smell.
and we didn’t have mathematics . . . it was just called arithmetic.
We didn’t have mobile phones, so our parents never knew where we were until it was time for dinner. Then, if we weren’t home, they would just go outside and yell. I would go out riding my horse and not come home until dark. When I was eight, I would ride my bike over the other side of town, crossing the highway, and mow my grandmother’s lawns. By the time I was ten, I could make dinner for the family, and bake cookies and cakes.
What do you remember about your childhood that most children now miss out on?
