Ansolutely as far as the “ watching out for us” statement.
And for that I am always grateful. Lol. I might add that neighbors along the path were also keeping a close eye on our shenanigans, more than once we had to be put in our place ( they would say send them to the hoosegow??) I liked those that referred to the Castle .
Seriously, we weren’t bad, adventurous I would say. We built huts too.
Those same neighbors joked about a new adventure on the horizen, many times some of the older retired gentleman would come along fearing we would chop fingers off ( he seen the Ax we were trudging along with , yes we were the stand by me crew.)
So anyway God bless my Mom! If she knew all this, I would have had a personal “Castle,” and my name would have been Rapunzel.
