I grew up in NYC! Midtown Manhattan to be exact. My fondest memory was playing in the fire hydrants and hanging out with friends until the street light came on!

I loved traveling about 3 hours to stay a week at my Aunt and Uncle's house on Lake George in Midway, GA with all my cousins. We went crabbing, boating, fishing, picked vegetables from the garden - which became awesome meals, and learned to drive on the dirt roads! What great memories as my cousins were my first best friends!

I grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts, two streets away from the ocean. My favorite activity was riding my bike along Lynn Shore Drive, and swimming at the beach with my friends. We'd all go out for ice cream on warm summer nights.

Staying in the house watching TV all day was not done.

We played baseball throughout the day and we were flipping cards on the corner when not playing. I lived in a neighborhood of row homes and there were so many kids--always someone to pal around with. AND do you remember the mosquito man. We ran in the fog (DDT) behind the truck and loved it. We were well greased with the poison --AND we were having a ball. For the good times

Now mind you this is 40 years ago, but we truly enjoyed "each other" back then. Meaning we actually interacted. Instead of computers, hand held games and cell phones we played flashlight tag, hide and go seek, kick the can/ball, bicycle races or just plain took walks. Those were the truly the days of a great childhood.

Going to grandma and grandpa's house and riding on their tractors, playing in the corn bins, running through the corn mazes, and grandma's cooking! Also getting in trouble was fun and running away from them.
