Small town U.S.A

Well like I have said before, I grew in a small town in the midwest. I think this picture says it all. I think some times people forget what life is all about. To me its about family. With out family what do you really have. Its easy to forget that. Its kinda funny as I get older and I look back at when I was a kid. Those were the best times of my life. Did not have to worry about bills or going to work. The only thing I had to worry about was when can I go out and play. Back then we did not have the internet or cell phones or ipods. If your mom needed you for some thing she would just open the door and yell your name. God help ya if you did not here her. Ya and we ate tuna fish out of a can that you had to use a key to open the can. HDTV what was that. We like 5 channels and yes you had to get up out of your chair to change the channel. Some one told me that there a song about all of this, I have never heard it before but I am going to check it out. So if you have time one day, you might want to stop and look around and rember family is what it is all about. At least to me it is.

I grew up on a farm. We used to spend the holidays roaming the fields and woods. No computer games or daytime TV, just our imagination.

We knew it was time for home when we could here our mom calling too!

Thanks for reviving those memories

I remember those days of fun and play. Our parents worried about all of the stuff we worry about now. Sigh, to be young again.

I think the simplest times are the happiest times! I remember playing kickball until dark - and we didn't have to worry about kidnappers or other types of evil. You are right about the importance of family. Good post!

Heh. That photo could have been taken in my wonderful hometown of Benton, Ark. I love it here so much I moved away for 13 years and came back home.

I also grew up in a "small town" in the Midwest and now 37 years later live 5,000 miles away on a different continent and country. How I miss the small town/Midwest mentality. Obviously things have changed over the years, but yet some things have not.
