Exercise / Play

Last weekend, it was beautiful.  The temperature was in the mid-70's and little wind.

I was bicycling and noticed NO kids out playing.

When I was younger (pre-teen) we were always outside playing.  In the summer, we played baseball.  There were 4 of us, so we played 2 on 2 with right field a foul ball and invisible runners and pitcher's hand was out.

In the fall, we played football.  Touch with 2 on 2.  Mainly passing since, it was so hard to get away running (we played in the street).

In the winter, we played hockey on a frozen creek or pond.  You could not raise the puck to score since we didn't have protective gear or goalie sticks.

We bicycled everywhere, like the Zoo or to play.  Our parents did not have to drive us everywhere.

It seems that now-a-days, kids around here must have video games or something.  We were not fat and were always on the move.

My grandkids (who live far away) are always active, camping or backpacking or kayaking.  They are not obese and are fit.  It was just hard to see such a beautiful day wasted by the kids around here!
