I Want To Go Back To The Time When…

• Decisions were made by going “eeny-meeny-miney-mo”
• Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming “do over!”
• “Race issue” meant arguing about who ran the fastest
• Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in “Monopoly”
255/365 - capturing light in jar.
• Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening
• It wasn’t odd to have two or three “best” friends
• Being old referred to anyone over 20
• The net on a tennis court was the perfect height to play volleyball and rules didn’t matter
• The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was “cooties”
• It was magic when dad would “remove” his thumb
• It was unbelievable that dodgeball wasn’t an Olympic event
Water Balloons
• Water balloons were the ultimate weapon
• Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a slingshot
• Nobody was prettier than Mom
• Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better
• It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the “big people” rides at the amusement park
• A foot of snow was a dream come true
Ice Cream Boys
• Ice cream was considered a basic food group
• Abilities were discovered because of a “double-dog-dare”
• Saturday morning cartoons weren’t 30-minute ads for action figures
• No shopping trip was complete unless a new toy was brought home
• “Olly-olly-oxen-free” made perfect sense
• Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles
• The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team
• War was a card game
• Baseball or playing cards in the spokes transformed any bicycle into a motorcycle. You can refresh your memory of that sweet sound below.

• Taking drugs meant orange-flavored chewable aspirin
• Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest protectors

By land area, Sudbury is the largest city in Ontario.
