There were people who did not have cars and airplanes and they had to walk or ride a horse sometimes which was bad on their people feet and they didn't have sunburn. And horse do bite too, so that was something to really worry about too. When kids were born in old west times they sometimes got the mumps. Then the doctors did not have ice cream to give the kids so they have to stay with their mumps".
