Oh my. We would have not done well in the house all day!  Lol

in the summers We were up at dawn, did our chore, and didn’t come home until the street lights came on. We would eat lunch where ever we were playing. If our house, mom would feed whomever was there. 
in our small hometown, no one ever minded if we got water or fruit off the trees. 
Everyone looked out for the kids. We had such fun summers. 
that’s my happy place, there when we were kids.

You all completely surprised me. It was a good bye for Viola. Lol

but THANK YOU ALL!  I got home and read my quilt. “Fight like a girl, etc.”. It made me feel happy. ♥?

Sounds idyllic. Me...during school year I left in time for schoolbus and had to be back 3:45 when the bus pulled up. No going out. And during the summer, we hardly ever went outside, either. But I could get through 3 books/day!

Thank you for sharing.   Do all of you live there or are some of you snowbirds

Quite a few of them live in Phoenix.  The rest of us are scattered around the country. My house is in New Mexico  but I live in Colorado in a RV and Vista my house when I can.

I am now totally "PEA GREEN" with envy.  You go girl.. and it sounds like you do.  I have entertained the thought of a very small RV so I could gadabout at will. 

Looked at renting one on my trip to stay in near my son.  I first asked if any of their friends had one they'd rent to me.. They are all "hotel" folks when they travel.  The kids are very gracious, but it would be nice to have my own space when I visit.  Had planned to look at some 2nd home type property, but I just didn't have enough time.  Plus, places get sold o fast you practically have to be sitting in a realtors office when something goes on the market.
