How Many Do You Remember? Start Counting

Think back to yesteryear when things were simple and all you have to worry about was school and chores. Do you remember those days? I think we all miss them sometimes. Being a child was much simpler and innocent. I specifically miss my old 45s that came with books to follow along. Time seems to move like molasses when we are young and then accelerates into warpspeed once we become adults.
