"Name a chore you did when you were little that kids nowadays have never done."
One of my Facebook friends posted those words and he's getting some great feedback.
I don't know that I can name one.
I remember my older brother mowing the lawns with the old manual mower. It wasn't difficult if he kept up but once the lawns grew long, man, what a workout he'd have cutting that grass. I can still see him taking runs at the thick, long grass and the physical exhaustion he'd experience when finished.
I remember thinking, hoping I'd never have to do that.
Well, I was only 8 years old when my brother ventured out on his own at age 21. He wasn't around to mow the lawn anymore. I wasn't strong enough yet.
It wasn't long before my Dad got tired of pushing that old reeling, manual mower and he bought a nice, new motorized unit from the Eaton's store. I would never have to use the manual mower.
They say timing is everything in life. There's some proof right there.
