Born a BOOMER !!!!!!!
(Palolo Valley, Hawaii)
Slept on my tummy as an infant; learn to duck under my school desk and given the polio vaccine in a cube of sugar in my elementary school years. Ran in back chasing the mosquito fogging truck. Learning to swim b y pushing each other into the river. Making spears out of coat hanger, thread spool and some rubber bands to shoot crawfish from the streams and roasting them on an open fire for lunch along with the mango, bananas, guava, mountain apples and plums that we gathered on the hike to the water fall pool. Rubbing mud all over to avoid mosquito bites. Swinging from the tree vine into the ice cold pool. Laughing, joking, teasing and having a hell of a good time. Only to get smacked and grounded when we got home because the school called to find out why we were absent.
But, it was all worth it as a little boomers starting out in the early 50's.....
