Hubby tells of leaving home on his bike in the morning and not being worried about , as long as he showed up for supper. He covered a lot of territory on his bike. I wish my grandkids could know such freedom.

We had similar freedom and this was in the Los Angeles area. My cousins, sister and I roamed for miles on bikes and walking with a wagon. We found hidden "wild life" areas in the city. Even made some money picking up tossed away soda bottles. Got 2 or 3 cents per bottle. A wagon full gave us plenty of cash for 3 or 4 of us to buy ice cream, sodas, bubble gum and/or candy bars.Then back on the bikes to work it off! We were doing this as young as 8 or 9 years old until we got old enough to want to take buses to go shopping for clothes downtown- that started at around 13 or 14.
