I was hoping to broaden the list beyond the 25 noted, and include any disappearing icons from your life that you'll miss when they're gone.dorajar wrote:Out of that list I think I personally will miss hand-written letters the most, but the family farm has much more serious ramifications for the health of our country.
One that comes to me particularly is the death of Halloween trick or treating for kids. It felt so naughty and dangerous, running around in the dark to strangers' houses. But perhaps moreso I felt it as a cultural custom, just something that people went out and did, without anyone organizing it or doing it under the auspices of some supervised activity.
I would also put ice cream delivery trucks in that disappearing treasure category.
OK, I'll add general free play in the great outdoors for kids. I grew up in Eden Prairie when EP was still 90% wilderness. We built forts in the woods, trekked down to the river, had adventures and got our share of cuts and scrapes to show for them. Nowadays it seems that kids' play is all structured and supervised and everyone is hyper-concerned about safety.
