We spent Saturday travelling to visit MIL in nursing facility then to BIL's just because, then to my sister's before heading home.
170 miles all told and a good day for driving.
Our trip involved going through some Amish country on the first and last leg of our trip, albeit there were 2 different areas. We were admiring the beauty of the snow covered hills and fields and suddenly my wife and I both noticed the lack of sledding tracks. A lot of what we were seeing was not in the amish communities and we started remembering the fun we had as children with just a small rise (possibly just a ditch bank) and the number of friends that came from all around to join in. Now we wondered just why there were no kids having fun (as we had) since the temps were in the mid 20's and the sun was shining brightly. It was perfect conditions!
Has society changed so drastically that the children of today have no fun? Is "electronic" gaming that over-whelming that the natural enjoyment of being outdoors in ideal surroundings with friends has disappeared?
Just a little of my thoughts for today.
