Why do these posts always romanticize things like not wearing seatbelts or sunscreen.
when ever I hear the words "we used to" It always ends with something that I have gotten in trouble for and "old-timers" got away with.
there will always be the "good old days" I think it's the idiots who blame things that make those times change faster...

Ha ha ha. I lived on the Dixie Highway...wouldn't have worked for me. :)
