You mean like playing out in the sun all day and then coming in
at night, watching "Lost in Space" (up close), with a glass of
Tang. Sun, sugar, and X-rays, those were the days. Notice I did
not mention the X-ray machine that would determine your shoe
size -- when buying your Keds or PF Flyers. I really could "jump
higher and run faster." *
