Stroll down memory lane

Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger. 
And with all our progress, don't you just wish, just once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.
When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home.
Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn't because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat!?  But we survived because their love was greater than the threat. 
As well as summers filled with bike rides, Hula hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.
Didn't that feel good, just to go back and say, 'Yeah, I remember that'.     
I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dog Dare. To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, read on. And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care. 

Remember Howdy Doody and The Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The Shadow knows, Nellie Bell, Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk. 

Candy cigarettes. 

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside. 

Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles.


Feeling young and seeing double
