My problem, but today I was thinking how much fun I had 'rolling tires'. I would bet I added a few hundred miles to some worn out tires. Boys my age just ran behind and beside a tire pushing it along.
I met boys from the cities up north and they rolled 'Barrel rings' using a stick. We didn't have barrel rings, so we rolled tires. Until I was 9-10 I could fold up inside a 16" tire and a buddy would push me down a hill. That was a dizzy ride, but I loved it.
I am glad there were no 'steel' belted tires back then, we would have gotten scratched thousands of times by the worn out belts sticking through the rubber of the tire.
We recycled before we knew what it was.
Speaking of recycling, I wonder how many times my mama used the same quart 'Ball' jars in canning.
What did you 'recycle' 'repurpose' or use again.
