Well said! Today's young people don't have a clue. Until I was 9 when we moved, our toilet was at the bottom of the back yard, with newspaper for toilet paper on a hook behind the door. Did I feel I suffered as a child, no way, we didn't know anything else and as you say, were never hungry, etc.etc. We played out in the back lane or the street without a worry, not like today whining for a smart phone or their own tv etc. It's a different world.
