My family and I often discuss this. I remember being outside all day long the whole year. I hunted, fished, trapped, cut trees down, worked on many local farms, and the list goes on & on. I think it made me a better person and wouldn't change it even if I could. :)

AGREED! and it was a much simpler time too.
I try to get my 11 year old out with me every chance I can. Sometimes I have to pry him away from his video games. :mad:

My grandson used to be bored stiff when he came up here, he's 16 now & the last couple of years we don't see him much once here, he's found things in the woods that I didn't know were there, he now leaves one of his kayaks here, I take him & the kayak (with bottled water & lots to eat down to the lake after breakfast & don't get the call to come get him until it's starting to get dark. He still plays a few games but only before bed.

Thanks, I say that a lot. I feel I am a better person because of the disappointments and failures. They make the achievements that much more appreciated. I laugh every time my daughter rides her Suzuki 50cc trike and it tips a little and she shifts her weight to the high side and corrects it. Sure they are more unstable than a quad. But you need to learn how to correct.
Great find 009to090

I remember when we had actual "Try-outs" for Little League. You "tried out" and if you were good enough you were choosen, if not go home and try again next year.

We all had respect for those who came back the following year and went for it again. 9 times outta 10 they made it too.

Fast forward many yrs later when I was Baby-sitt...ehhemm, I mean coaching little league teaching kids how to slide properly was frowned upon and then outlawed all together, everybody got a darn Trophpy even for Losing! BAHHHH!!

That trophy for all really pisses me off too. When my son was playing soccer he got a trophy one year and his team lost. I asked him why he got a trophy he says, 'Everyone gets one just for playing.' That set me off. I then explained to him his team lost, they tried their best but still lost. I then asked if he felt he deserved a trophy for losing, get said no. I grabbed a garbage can and gave it to him. He threw the trophy out. Last year he played baseball. His team lost. He refused the trophy.
