For those of ya who haven't had the pleasure of reading every bodys Buddy Hermit Jim you should.Jim keeps up with all the bad in the world but tends to focus on the good,which for a Doomer like me is refreshing I tend to get caught in all the bad news.
Today Jim had a cool post on the infamous Black Bart from the old west.It got me thinking about cap guns,cowboys n Injuns,tonka trucks and earth movers,cartoons,etc.My Dad was a hard working man I didn't get to play as often as my buddies,and as a kid I used to hate it.As a grown (overgrown) man I now appreciate all my Dad taught me,I have skills most of my buddies never will,I have a strong work ethic.But childhood hasn't been thought about for a long time.The gun fights were cool we stayed out until they threatened to pull switches off the tree.If it wasn't cowboys n indians,it was world war II. I had an Uncle and Grandad that had been at someplace called Kooreea but we were to little to know about the brave men dying at places like Chosin.We was always Sgt's with tough names like Mack and Joe or Charlie me I liked Rock remember Sgt Rock comic books.
Don't let your kids grow up to fast.Some folks seem to rush theirs.There is plenty of time for grown up things.
Enjoy their childhoods with them,I know ya work and get tired and have grown up things to think about and take care of,but enjoy your children while they still are.
