I sympathize. Look what happened to Sally Field, Sandra Dee, Annette Funicello and hundreds more. They reminded us we too are aging, some like wine and some not so well.Today's supposed media darlings? So many look and sound and act alike. I suppose they said that about Bette Davis and Claudette Colbert at one time.
One thing that really pisses me off though. Youth is wasted on the young, we were too stupid to appreciate it, as I sit here with a back ache and suffering from a poor night sleep due to a myriad collection from decades of stupid youthful stunts.
Yes but we were free and could do as we liked all day. As long as we did what mom said. If mom was happy dad was almost always happy. That and you could not do anything wrong as your mom and dad would get a phone call.
Sooooo True! Mom would kick us out in the morning, I'd hike to the river and the town of Freeport 3 miles away and spend the day there with friends, and what happened in freeport, stayed in Freeport, unless someone called mom, who told dad who beat your ass.
True that. I had other brother, two sister and a town full of people. Eyes were everywhere, old people sat out in rocking chairs all day long as there was no TV yet. The only people we did not know were people that moved into town with in the last day or two.
Ya know, it is rather telling, in that as a kid it was not unusual for an adult to bark orders to us kids, be it crossing the street, to "Put that shit down dumb ass, it's dead, idiot, you could get sick!" "Don't make me call your mom".Our responce? "Yes Sir, sorry sir", all in unison.
