1975, Beechgrove Park, Welton family reunion.
I see that my brothers and I all have matching shirts on.
I also see my cousin Steve and his sisters, Sondra and Rhonda.
There is some other kid that I don't recognize on there too.
Why aren't these swings on playgrounds anymore?
You used your legs and your arms with this swing. A full body work out and team work.
Hold on tight and run a fast as you could. When you got it going fast enough (Or you wanted to make the older cousins do all the work) you picked up your feet and swung like Batman going from building to building.
In 75 we played. We played outside and we were fit kids.
I can remember only one or two kids that couldn't climb up a rope in gym class back then.
I wonder how many kids can't or have never tried to climb a rope now?
I wonder if I can now?
