We never had a swing set as a kid

September 10, 2019 05:50PM
I know I mentioned on here before , we used to have a guy on our block that was a Zenith TV dealer , only a couple houses away and they had a great swing set , the sides were basically telephone poles planted way into the ground , so that swing set was going now where.................lol

and man you could get some height on those swings , they had a rhubarb patch like about 10 yards away , so we would swing as high as we could and try and jump over the rhubarb patch , but seldom ever made , we ruined alot of rhubarb and were often in trouble

I remember many times trying to straighten out the rhubarb to try and make it look like they weren't busted , great swing set , but no slide though

even with 4 kids we never had our own swing set , my parents always figured we were just going to go over the the neighbors and use there's anyways , so what was the point

  My Brother was born in 1961. I always thought he came up with MUCH cooler toys.
