Instructing your kids in the discipline of self defense is an excellent investment.
Learn martial arts.
remember when all this was necessary?
I Remember That
cootie...we had this game growing up. My mom is actually looking for the old school version of this game. Instead, my niece bought her the modern one, but it's not the same.
Wind up clock.....it glowed green at night and had a really loud alarm!!
Bonfires and leaf burning...when I was a kid, the whole family raked the yard and piled the leaves up to either burn or jump in! Even today, the smell of burning leaves instantly takes me back to those twilight nights of leaf burning.
My parents got one of these as a wedding gift 41 years ago, I used it in my first apartment and it still makes great coffee!
Cash Register - I used one of these for a part-time job in the 70's. It had a hand crank in case the power went out ... ;)
