At my age ,this is a depiction that brings me back to different times.Times of less supervision and political correctness ,a time we felt FREE as children to mimic the adults in our country,back-woods culture ,to feel our right to be boys ,who wanted to be adults but with a Huck Finn Attitude.Even the old bike(new then)and the mythical little creatures we imagined with us .AND even my friend`s Mom`s veggie stand where we camped out as we planned our next adventurous day at the county dump to dig up more Bull-Durham pouches and rolling-papers!
