I was born in 81 and did almost everything on that list. You guys aren't as old as you want to be.

Default Great Post Jack!!!

Born '76
I was just jokin' with my mom the other day that if the fairys today would've seen us kids growing up they'd have takin me away, locked her up and threw away the key.
Since around age 5 or 6 me and my cousin would leave the house in the morning and run around the woods and farm all day unattended cutting trees, building forts, making trails, chasing wild animals and all the other good stuff a 6yo "mountain man" can get into.
A little older and we worked the farm baling hay, picking corn, harvesting grain, fixing fence, chasing cows and all kinds of other work they'd crucify my parents and grandpap for today.
We all had our share of cuts, bruises and broken bones but hey thats life.
I think it made us all strong, tough, proud, respectful and self-reliant and I wouldn't trade my upbringing for any other.--------Gate

Can we get an Amen?

Amen. When I was 10, my buddies and I could go to the local country store, where Mrs. Mosby would sell us .22 and .410 ammo. She KNEW we had 22s and .410s- they came from her store. And she not only knew our Mom and Dad, but our Grandparents. Funny- no one thought about shooting up their school. Probably since we liked our teacher- she sat in the pew behind ours at church. Gun locks? Whazzat? Grew up with a Marlin 30-30 hanging on the wall in my bedroom- If I went over to GrandDads, there was a Parker 12 g behind the kitchen door.

Oddly, none of these things are permitted in those boot camps for f****d up teen offenders. Too cruel.

Society sickens me.

I read this again and decided I should run thru the house with scissors. My wife tripped me, jumped on my back and while holding my head against the hardwood she snatched the scissors from my hand. Now I saw thru paper with a butter knife.

The Piney Woods School - Changing the World...One Student at a time. This is a school for youths with issues, and it has always included farm work as part of the curricullum. I've also heard that it has been VERY effective. I didn't go there, but i've heard some interesting stories over the years. It is south of Jackson, MS.
