If it doesn't have a bunch of zeros or ones kids today won't know what it is. But it does bring back memories.

Our Grandson is 3, LOVES staying here and going camping with Nana and Pop. He has a few inside toys, a ton of books and puzzles, But spends most of his time outside playing or wandering the woods (followed of course). He can lead you thru the woods to his Dads house over a mile away. Leads us on hikes at campgrounds on trails he has walked before.
I just hope he doesn't lose that as he grows.

Being a '63 year model a lot of this tread brings back memories...and growing up in the country around my Great Grandparents I got to experience a lot of the older era technology....shoveling coal, wringer washer, a Spring house....an out house... yes some things are better today, I have lived where running water involved a rope bucket and shoes.

With all that walking, I just figured he owned a Ford.

I hear that some dealerships are giving their buyers a free puppy with the purchase of a Ford. That way they don't have to walk alone.

We spent a few years in Maine when I was a kid. We'd bring the tent down to the coast and dig up clams for steaming at night. Today, get this, you have to buy a $15 license in order to dig for clams. (When it's not red tide.)
