Saturday soapbox

Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.

Without mentioning your age, what is something you did in your childhood that kids today wouldn’t even understand?

    I made daisy chains to hang around my neck. We would pick the daisies from the lawn, then make a little slit in the stem of each and feed the next daisy through the slit. We also made mud pies, pretending that we were baking, and played ‘school’ with one as teacher and others as the pupils. Oh, and ‘doctors and nurses’ … that was always interesting !

    Racing home made ball bearing karts down steep roads in the dark, and surviving.

    Collecting tadpoles from the farm pond and watching them turn into frogs – sadistic or educational?
