Can you imagine what they would have gotten for playing Cowboys and Indians.

Well, at least there is some rational thought behind being opposed to kids playing cowboys and indians. The cowboys and indians I played as a kid, the cowboys were always good and the indians were always bad. Always. The only good indian was a dead one. Cops and robbers is totally different.

"Can you imagine what they would have gotten for playing Cowboys and Indians."

In the 50's, that's all we ever played. Those were the days of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, Davy Crockett, etc. My brother was a big John Wayne fan. All he ever wanted to be was a soldier. He played war with those green plastic Army figures all the time. He also enjoyed drawing pictures of war scenes, with tanks blowing up things, and stick figure soldiers shooting each other. Thank God we were allowed to be kids back then.

As we did in the '50s. It was agreat way to get exercise and we even used our Daisy BB guns as props. Nobody ever shot anyone (our Dads would have made life hell if one of us teed up a BB and let fire at a friend) and we all stayed healthy - in mind and body.
