We left a note, on the kitchen table, for mom and then we ran all over town, all day long..until dinnertime.

We were expected to do our best in school, if not, we were blamed for failing, the teacher was not blamed. 

We didn't have our moms hovering over us constantly. We could breathe and were free to be kids.

We used to fight to answer the phone.

I played outside until the street lights came on. 

I rode my bike/skateboard without a helmet, elbow and knee pads.

Oh yes, we had a time limit on calls when we were in high school! When I got older my parents let me have my own line in my room!

I remember the races for the phone. Sometimes we didn't even make it before it stopped ringing. And then you had to wonder who called.

We used to tape ours to the cabinets. Sometimes they'd blow off the table since the windows were open all the time.

We'd use the salt or pepper shaker as a paperweight. :)

I drank from the water hose.  

Also, woe be the child who disrespected their parents (today's crap wouldn't fly)
