When I was a child, the ice man came in a truck to deliver ice for our 'ice box' (refridgerator). He had a grappling hook and would pull out this huge block of ice and little pieces of ice would fall off which we grabbed. My brother and I rode our bikes all over our part of town and played football with the neigborhood boys until dark. NO TV, no cell phones, no WIFI, no games except the board games. Played cards and monopoly all summer long with friends. I was born in 1945, now 67+. It was a safe world then.
