Hrm....fancy research work on your part but I knew you was just faking the minute I read where you put 'hide n seek' in the time slot we all know was reserved for catching fireflies and putting them in mason jars with holes punched in the lids and a bit of plant life in the bottom of the jar. And you forgot to mention stained fingers from picking wild berries or that the tv, besides being warmed up also required that you go turn knobs and dials to switch channels....and do you remember when 'converter boxes' were all the rage so you could get that new (all the rage) movie channel? Milk delivered to your front door and one quarter of it was cream on the top that was skimmed off to make butter and ice-cream or for coffee. Dragon flies as big as small birds and those enormous bright green grass hoppers? Ever ridden in a rumble seat? No? Whipper-snapper! :) How about flavor straws for your milk? Summers lasted about three years after school let out and all meals, even school lunches, were served on real dishes and the only disposable eating utensils you used were the little wooden spoons that came with cups of ice-cream.
