There used to be this hill on the East side of the playground that we would have a lot of fun on

We would make little tracks and race monster trucks down it.

Chad was for some reason really cool because he was really into cars and trucks and I think he used to bring lots of monster trucks to play with.

But for some odd reason they did not like the fact that we would play on this hill for fear that kids probably would roll down and hurt themselves.

Eventually they fenced off this part of the playground.

It sucked.

It also sucked how you would get in trouble if you went in the woods.

Very overprotective rules. Just let the kids be! I remember playing lots of hide and seek type games in those woods at Burt in after school hours.

What do you remember from this Hill Chad and other Burt people?

I used to be a "Shirley Temple" and "Annie" impersonator at a place called "MR. F's when I was 8 years old.

"MR. F's" was a fancy restaurant that had a stage in their Main Dining room. People would pay an egregious amount of money to eat dinner and watch their favorite "celebrities"perform. Some of the impersonators included, Kenny Rogers, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, and Diana Ross. They always brought me up near the finale and I wouldn't get done until around 10 o'clock at night... which wasn't good for a kid my age, especially on a school night.

Anyway, I got a paycheck every week, but I have no idea how much I made. I think it was something like $500 a week, which is pretty darn good.

The guy who owned the restaurant (who happened to be the Kenny Rogers impersonator) was going through a divorce and since his wife owned half of the restaurant. She decided to close it down.

One night, my mom and I showed up to "MR. F's" for one of the shows and all the doors were locked. I . . . Read More..

In Kintergarden, they used to have a 'field day' at school. We would play competitive games, such as running with an egg on a spoon, three-legged races, regular races and obstacle courses.

I ended up winning first place in all of the running competitions. Now that I think about it, I have always loved to run even when I was unaware of it. I was pretty decent as well. I was very proud of my first place ribbon that I still have.
