Growing up in the 1950s will never happen again. The adventures, exploits, and hero worship of a suburban latch key kid who was let loose in a virtual Disneyland of empty lots, brooks, a neighborhood junkyard, and a recreation center cannot be duplicated. Who, today is playing in empty lots, riding bicycles to neighboring towns, or chasing the Good Humor man down the street? And all of this without any supervision except for the recreation center. Jimmy's life as a wise-ass street kid will entertain and inform you of a bygone age that also includes his hero-worship of the recreation director whom he considered his surrogate father.
