You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas 
pumped, without asking, all for free, every time? 
And you didn't pay for air? And, you got trading 
stamps to boot?

They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they 
failed...and they did it!

When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car... 
to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went steady

No one ever asked where the car keys were 
because they were always in the car, in the ignition,
and the doors were never locked?

Lying on your back in the grass with your friends
and saying things like, 'That cloud looks like a...'?

Playing baseball with no adults to help kids 
with the rules of the game?

Stuff from the store came without safety caps 
and hermetic seals because no one had yet 
tried to poison a perfect stranger?

And with all our progress, don't you just 
wish, just once, you could slip back in time 
and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.

When being sent to the principal's office 
was nothing compared to the fate that awaited 
the student at home?

Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it 
wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, 
gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were
a much bigger threat! But we survived because
their love was greater than the threat.

...as well as summers filled with bike rides, 
Hula Hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating 
Kool-Aid powder with sugar.

Didn't that feel good, just to go 
back and say, 'Yeah, I remember that'?

I am sharing this with you today because it 
ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on. 
To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, 
read on. And remember that the perfect age 
is somewhere between old enough to know 
better and too young to care. 
Send this on to someone who can 
still remember Howdy Doody and The 
Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, 
The Shadow knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and Dale, 
Trigger and Buttermilk.

Decisions were made by going 'eeny-meeny-miney-moe'?
