I just watched the goonies for the first time since i was a kid.
seeing it through adults eyes was so different.
aside frm the treasure hunt and everything, the day to day life was accurate to my own child hood.
Mom and dad both out of the house, the kids left to fend for themselves. those kids rode their bikes 25 miles to get down to the spot they needed to be. even chunk, the overweight kid, rode his bike 25 miles to get there.
they went on an amazing journy that took 2 days! all on foot.
these days, i hear kids (and parents too!) bitching about schools being too far away to walk. SMH. we wonder why we have obese kids.
well maybe if we let them walk more than 20 feet without stopping....
