I walked a mile to school and back in grade school and this was the early 70's. Not every little hick town had buses.
Spent most of my time outside, had an abandoned gravel pit, woods and cornfields behind my house. Ran around and shot stuff with a BB gun, hunted salamanders and snakes. Only watched Sat. morning cartoons, no TV the rest of the week. Winters were sledding, snow forts and ice skating on the pond.
I miss those days......
It's not the gun in the hand, it's the hand on the gun.
