I am seriously reminiscing today. Having an ‘I MISS MY CALIFORNIA CHILDHOOD’ moment...... •••
🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 ••• I grew up in Los Angeles CA, during a time when everyone treated each other like family. We went outside to play, got dirty and we didn't eat fast food, well maybe Hamburger City (the jungle/Baldwin Hills adjacent lol) Pup ‘n Taco or Jim Dandy Fried Chicken. We ate bologna & salami sandwiches, homemade cooked food and got ice cream from the ice cream truck. We ate penny candy, yes I said, "Penny", that's how much it cost then. We played Mother May I, 1,2,3 Red Light Green Light, Hide & Seek, Truth or Dare, Tag, Hop scotch, Dodgeball, Baseball, Redrover, kick ball, football, rode bikes and raced against each other in the street. We cried if we couldn't go outside and play. There was no bottled water, we drank from the kitchen faucet or water hose if we were outside and too afraid to go in or else we’d be made to stay in. 😄 We watched cartoons on Saturday morning, we walked to the corner store and rode our bikes for hours without a cell phone. We weren't AFRAID OF ANYTHING. If someone had a fight, that's what it was...a fist fight. Kids didn't have guns when I grew up. The street lights were your curfew. School was mandatory and we watched our mouths around our ELDERS because ALL of your neighbors were your parents so we knew if we didn't we were in big trouble when we got home. Jamming to 1580 KDAY FM Radio while at Summer Block parties & Backyard Boogies were Epic & so much fun!
These were the good ole days. Kids today will never know how it feels to be a REAL KID. ❤❤❤. #LosAngeles #BaldwinHills #Inglewood #Crenshaw #carclub #oldschool #thewood #compton @nipseyhussle #thebottoms #hawthorne #hiphop #lakers #raiders @realdlhughley #summer #insta #hood
