When I was a kid I walked to school in the city, in the winter, up hills both ways.

You forgot to mention that you walked barefoot in winter, didn't have a coat or gloves, and that it was 10 miles each way.

Oh yes I always walked to school, if you lived in the city limits you walked to school. No big deal unless it rained then you got wet because Mom did not come get you at school. It's different now if you live half a block from school the bus picks you up

Turbs only walked bare footed to kindergarten one day. The Iowa school board kicked him out forever the same day and when he walked back home, his parents had moved to another county. Ms Amy picked him up several years later and has been TRYING DESPERATELY to teach him to use silverware to eat, change clothes at least every other day and to bath more than 2x a year. She is slowly making progress, bless her soul.

Agree with the OP. All fun and games till someone gets a needle stick and picks up a life changing disease.

AH THATS NOTHING
just think of all the pi$$ and faecal matter on the bottom of your wife's purse from the office where she works or walmart where she shops.

I never went barefoot much having grown up in the north. It was too cold all but a couple of months so my feet were too tender for full time bare footing. However, when I was just a young pup I had a friend who lived on a farm. I would go spend weekends with him in the summer. He taught me a game out in the pasture. It was called who can find the freshest cow flop. This was determined by sticking your bare feet in a fresh looking one then determining by the heat in it how old it was. That's probably why I ended up with toenail fungus later in life. :-(

I pulled into a rest stop that had a dump station. A car was parked right in the front of the dump station. I asked the lady, very politely, if she could move forward so I could use the dump station. She snarled at me that she "would move as soon as she finished washing her cats." I moved on.
