Life on the Lake (1)


When I walk around a neighborhood these days, whether here or the US, I notice one thing: few kids outside.

Where are they ?  Probably inside, either studying or (more likely) playing video games or surfing the net.

At the risk of sounding old, things were different when I was a teenager !

Nobody played video games or looked at website, because they didn't exist in 1977.  

I lived in a house with my parents in the northern US state of Phode Island.  We lived about 20 meters from a large lake.

This was heaven for a young boy, as we could do fishing, swimming and boating in the summer, and ice skating in the winter.                                     (G.K)
