during the summer, from the time I awoke, I was either outside running up and down the river, fishing, hunting, shooting, riding my bicycle, or later my dirt bike, until it got dark.
During the school year, we had to be home by 8:00 p.m. but if the homework and chores were finished, I had the freedom to take off until school night curfew.
What was even better, parents back then didn't have to worry nearly as much about nuts driving around trolling for children. Different times for sure.
