Idyllic tales of a childhood spent in the puerile stages of suburban Great Bridge in Chesapeake, Virginia in the 1970s and 1980s. There are no excuses here, no apologies, no holding back or hiding behind false names. The tales are true, the characters are real, and they are beautiful. While some of the stories may make you laugh, scratch your head, or reflect with a familiar sadness, you will hopefully find a sense of place. Hopefully, you will recall a time when you were almost some kid doing the same insane things described in these stories, and smile with pride how these kids pulled it off. We wish everyone could have grown up and experienced life in the way it is described here, though you would have needed a slightly warped mind to keep up. Think Leave It To Beaver meets Stand By Me meets One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and there you have it. While growing up, most children attempt something a little over the top, or assume they have come up with some new-fangled idea to get over on adults or other children. They are then usually harshly informed how SOME KID thought of it already, and tried it, and failed miserably. These are the stories of those children.
