Or tied a june bug on a stringThis is one big High 5 to all of you , who have done the following..
Churned butter , or buttermilk
Made homemade ice cream
Made homemade souse( pigs head )
Quilted with the old timing hanging boards
Went to the five and dime
Road in those old little metal cars( wish I still had mine)
Drank, onion tea, for colic
Had a chicken scratch ya , as it ran over you to help cure the pox
Picked black berries , all day and scratched all night from the chiggers
Lit your room up many nights, with lighting bugs
Swang on the porch swing all night with your love
Oh one could go on and on.....
caught night crawlers for fishing
ran a trot line
used an outhouse and a Montgomery Wards catalogue
made a spool willy with a thread spool,a rubber band, and a match

Bought an RC and a moon pie for 10 cents.. 5 cents each
worked most all day hoeing the garden for the 10 cents
