OFF TOPIC: I drove an ice cream truck this past summer and I would make the trip up to Winfield from Kelowna whenever I could just to hit sunburn ridge where I made twice what I did in any Kelowna neighborhood. Had no idea why it was called that...just knew that all you guys were pretty desperate for ice cream!! (Later, watching that side of the valley during a sunset, I saw why).

I remember when:

- anyone could enrol their child in either English or French school.
- potato chips could be bought for 25$/sac
- Ma Bell charged 10cents to use a pay phone
- cash registers were big brown manual clunkers!
- my grandmother wore boots she had to fasten using a button hook!

I remember when finding a few empty (glass) pop bottles meant a spending spree at the corner store :biggrin: Penny candies and 25 cents for a full-sized chocolate bar . . .

....there were no cell phones in the office you worked in....
....children didn't come to work with their parents because they don't trust daycare....

Do we see a theme here?

I remember when kids went to work with their parents and worked along side them!
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

Let me clarify. Every single day of the week. All summer long.

Huh. I have taken my kids to work once in a while when they were young - offered the choice between me taking the day off or bringing them with, I was told to bring them.

Did your coworker (I'm assuming) have clearance to do so?

Not trusting daycare, at 9. :135: I remember when kids were free-range. I remember summers where the only time I stopped in at home was to eat, and sometimes not even then if friends' parents were feeding us.
