To the Editor,
I was thoroughly blessed to be in a family that lived in a rural area. We were the only home in sight back then. I lived near what we called “The Old Stone Bridge” for 48 years in a family of eight.
Our lot was 2.5 acres, so we were outdoors a great deal of the time. We played ball, croquet, badminton, fox and geese, built snowmen, snow forts, about any outdoor activity you can imagine. The word “bored” never entered our vocabulary, or someone may find you some work to do.
