Default Sounds from childhood

What sounds from childhood do you no longer hear, but miss. (I borrowed this from another forum I visit, and thought it was interesting.)

For me growing up in cotton country "Jay Fl." I use to love hearing the sounds of the crop dusters going from field to field.Whipporwills, bobwhites, the sounds of combines, and cotton pickers off in the distance. T-ball games, and the parents cheering. The sound the ole wooden bridges made while a car drove over them while we were swimming in the creek, my grand parents singing bluegrass. I would trade the times we live in now for the times during childhood anytime.

Amen brotha, I would trade it in a New York second...we had NO IDEA how good we had it out there...riding 4 wheelers anywhere we wanted like we owned it, going to the creek everyday and hanging out in town every night...

I know some on here still do it. But I miss the sounds of dogs running in a good deer chase. Just something about that.

im not old by any stretch, but I miss hearing the Cicada's (sp?) on a hot summer day, my Grandpa callin' me "Booger," the sound my old swing made and "letting the cat die" (letting the swing die on it's own), the swaying of the trees when we'd light up a good bon fire. just to name a few.

it was a sound every kid heard in my neighborhood when all of the streets were still dirt roads. way before a 50 by 100 foot lot cost $200,000. way before all the snowterds started taking over our winter season. way before all the drugs and and perverts took over. it was maybe 5 minutes before dark. we were all dirty, tired and hungry from playing all day. every mom in the neighborhood would go on there front porches and yell there kids name. TIME FOR DINNER.im only 34 years old, but this country has taken a turn since i was a kid. i feel for my four sons.

Staying with my grandparents in northern rural mississippi, and waking up with my grandfather to a homecooked breakfast my grandmother made, and walking out to the barn and hearing absolutely nothing except nature and the creek that ran behind their house.

Same here. Creeks &branches,tractors and 4wheelers going up and down the road all day,cows lowing atnight, ducks on the ponds... I love going back to my parents house. It's so peaceful.

For those of you that miss the sounds of crickets, cicadas, birds I will have tapes made up for sale soon.. haha I live out in the woods so I get to hear it all the time. My niece from California came down two weekends ago and when we got out of the truck at night she looked at me funny and asked "is that just crickets there must be millions of them"
