I saw this forum earlier, but didn't want to be the first to post. . . :shock:
I grew up in a very rural area, and I remember when I was a kid, we had to play outside all the time as long as it wasn't raining. We ran around in the woods, helped mow the fields on the tractor and plant the gardens. I was the youngest so when I was really little, I always got "rock duty" when we were planting gardens.
