3 Things I Miss From Younger Days

If I had the money, every evening one of these would be on my lap in front of the TV. The AI just kept putting cucumber in there, so ignore that part, and I'd love a BLT with mayo for a late snack. We used to make these when I was young and with my parents. We did not make them often, but it was the only thing mom made that was not super over cooked. I really enjoyed them. Strange thing is, I've never had one any other place where it tasted quite as good as when I was a child. I think I have romanticized them in my memory to such a point that I remember them being a hell of a lot better than they actually where. It came close when I would make them at the camp site in my teen years however.
Camping is another thing I miss. Mostly I miss being around the fire with a friend or 2 or 3 and telling stories we would make up on the spot. We would share a case of beer and just enjoy the night. I don't think I ever slept better than when I was in a tent. Since I was 10 I have had problems sleeping, but I always slept well in my tent. To answer the obvious, no I never went to summer camp, just out with friends. One time 4 of us went down a river and camped in the wilderness. The father of one of the other guys picked us up 3 days later down stream. That was fun and I wish we did it way more often.
Coming home for lunch when I was in elementary school. More often than not, lunch would be a fresh off the pan grilled cheese and a bowl of tomato soup. I'd watch the Flintstones and eat it. It was always better in the winter. The warmth of it just made the trip to and from school in the snow more tolerable somehow. For a couple of years a friend came over for lunch. There was no one at his home to cook for him, and mom was happy to feed him. His name was also David BTW. Those where good days in my life.
