Your childhood sounds like it was really interesting.

I hunted for frogs and polliwogs in a little creek behind our house, I hunted for caterpillars and watched them turn to butterflies. We rollerskated up at the school where the concrete was smooth and we could go fast. We all walked to school until Jr. High and then we had to ride bikes because it was too far to walk. I walked to High School. We ate typical American food, but it was homemade. Things like pasties which are little meat pies, the crust made from flour and crisco. Or basics like roast beef with carrots and potatoes, shake-and-bake chicken, pork chops, spaghetti with meat sauce using a packet of spices and canned tomato paste, homemade pizza my mom made using frozen bread dough, tomato paste, spices and the regular pizza toppings. Breakfast cereal with sugar sprinkled on top or oatmeal. Poptarts on Saturdays. Jack-in-the-box on grocery night. Nothing too crazy.
