Rodger, TRKOF has a nifty list posted about all the things we did as kids back then. (Click on the post title).

I had to add the following:

Pretty much all of the above (fireflies when we visited the farm in Illinois).

We collected bottle caps and used the to play army, along with the green army guys (Toy Story) and the plastic military hardware that came with the set. Coke & Pepsi were the 'good guys' everything else was the bad guys.

Best trouble I ever got into was after a big rain, the neighbor's back yard at the end of the alley was flooded, and my best friend and I spent an afternoon pushing the un-cemented cinder blocks into the water, just to hear the 'sploosh'!

As I think of it, no stickball, either
