Throwback Thursday

l-r: Kim (or Christie I don't remember which) me, my cousin Ty, his dad Uncle Ray and cousin Jeff

This photo is circa 1980-something.
Based on my look here, I'm thinking early 80's.
This is the sort of thing we did back in the day for fun-
rode in the dump cart of Pepop's lawn tractor
with my cousin Jeff driving.
Nowadays kids drive in their own golf carts
like it's Florida or something
Seeing this photo reminds me of another fun past time
that involved the shell of a push mower. 
That is to say, it had the motor and blades removed
but still had the wheels and handle.
We'd take turns sitting on it while the others pushed us around as fast as they could.
I once took a tumble and ended up with a nice slice.
Seriously, I'm surprised we didn't get serious head injuries ended up keeping all our limps
didn't kill ourselves
didn't get tetanus.

  1. In the 50's in North Carolina we used to Run, such as playing roll the hoop (19th century)
    I read Mathews / Gloucester weekly newspaper and notice that golf cart use was soundly refused for folks on Gwynn's Island (from our Mad Calf Lane we can see past Cherry Point over toward Deltaville)
