Today's kids would call 911 and claim child abuse if you told them to play outside and just take a drink from the garden hose if they got thirsty.

I drank so much I acquired a taste for it. Hose pipe water was better than from the spigot.

While we also did this as kids, we drank more often from the creek. You know . . . dam up the creek to make a swimming hole, slurp down a little bit of crick water, torment the local water snakes and snapping turtles. Loads of fun.

I knew the creek better than I did my bedroom.

What adventures we had!

And despite not having an internet connection, a cellphone, a wristwatch or even a sun dial, we managed to keep track of things, get along, deal with problems and be home in time for dinner.
