Shawn K. Reply The Day Leaps Up And Down - Caroliner Rainbow Brain Tool Imbued With Rust And Mold* - Wine Cant Do. Cool things! I love them all! I recall growing up in Franklin MA the 2nd house from a dead-end and woods, and maybe 3 houses in another direction from a farm. As kids we were always outside … and my Mom would gather us back home from beeping on The Day Leaps Up And Down - Caroliner Rainbow Brain Tool Imbued With Rust And Mold* - Wine Cant Do car horn … how to share via text?
Oh do you remember the game Red Rover? All the neighborhood kids would get together in our big yard and play Red Rover, Red Rover send Becca right over! Riding my horse through the country side. We lived in the country and had so much room to roam! All of the kids in the neighborhood played together- not just kids that were the same age.
We had alot of kids in the neighborhood, so always had a game of some type going…. Oh, the good old days! Thanks for jogging my memory! Oh my gosh! That brings back memories of my rural childhood.
We grew or raised just about everything we ate. We had to help take care of the garden and when it The Day Leaps Up And Down - Caroliner Rainbow Brain Tool Imbued With Rust And Mold* - Wine Cant Do time to harvest we had to get it ready for canning by the time mom and dad got home from work. We too hung our clothes on the clothes line.
Nothing better than fresh towels and sheets from the clothes line. During the summer, we would sleep out in our sleeping bags almost every night and stay up late watching the stars on the pitch black nights.
We had dirt hills down the road and spent hours riding our bikes on them… such a wonderful life. In the hot summertime, she would bring out the old feather mattress and put it on the screened in, upstairs back porch, Tunga Mín Vertu Trei Ei Á - Kammerkórinn Carmina, Árni Heimir Ingólfsson - Melodia pillow, sheet, and, believe it or not, a blanket.
By morning, I was burried under the sheet and blanket, up to my eyes. That was so much fun. Carole Miller Reply Cancel. Hi What I remember as a kid is always being barefoot all summer long. I still go barefoot in the summer. And make sure I have clean feet before bed as I know just because my Mon is gone she is still watching.
Thanks for a chance to win some candy. Bon Reply Cancel. Playing with all of the neighborhood kids, catching lightening bugs — no worries! They were great times. And walking around barefoot and sticking my toes into the warm, gooey tar in the cracks of our paved roads that was warmed by the sun. And being able to stay out until dark… childhood was fun!
Thanks for a chance to win, and for taking me back to some wonderful memories! I miss those days too. Thanks for The Other Side - MIA* - Lost Boys blog candy!
I remember helping my grandparents on the farm. I would be in long sleeves and jeans on 80 degree days, bailing hay. My sister would drive the tractor and i got to help throw the bails of hay Internet - Tyrical - Internet the wagon.
They were hard times but you spent quality time with the families back then. Playing hide and seek in the street with friends at dusk on a summer evening, way past bedtime because Mum had come out to call me in but had got chatting to a neighbour! Wow, a real walk done memory lane! Scary thunderstorms with magical looking lightening…. Thanks again Becca for helping to bring it all back.
Beening out all day in the summer, playing tag at night. Having homemade pizza on Saturday-it was a treat with soda!!!! It was a wonderful life back then, it is bringing a tear to my eye. Wish somedays I could go back!!!
Oh yeah, lightening bugs! What fun to catch in a jar or smash and write your name on the sidewalk with them for it to glow! I loved to swing on my little swing set or on the porch swing during a rain storm! Playing hopscotch with a rock instead of chalk to draw the lines. Being the first family on the block to get a color tv. These are some of my favorite memories. She was a wonderful lady who treated me like her own! She would pull out her container of buttons and I would play for hours and hours with them — sorting them, etc.
Thanks, Becca, for bringing these wonderful memories back to me!! Hi, The good old days,I loved being outside,barefoot and in the woods. I remember when the feed man would come to the farm. He always had bubble gum for us kids and we would rush over to see him. OMG, I do remember those good ole days! It was good to be a kid back then. They had a wringer washer too. I did this at night all by myself too. No one worried that someone might take me away.
It was a simplar time then. Now enter me into the contest Becca! I remember being able to ride my bike all over the neighborhood until dark. I remember being in high school and doing some crazy things with my sister. Like my car breaking down and she pushing the car so we can get it Moon Unit - Various - Alba Absurdia and then her running and jumping into the car.
It was also so much fun to be around her. After that, I spent a lot of time thinking about the things I miss in my life now that were there when I was a kid… little things and big things, but all wonderful things. I was a city kid but it was always great when we went to visit one aunt and uncle who lived in the county. One of the best memories of those days was going when the bounty of the garden was ready for the taking.
My mom and my aunt would do a lot of canning which provided such wonderful food for months to come. I miss the wonderful fresh foods and also the yummy things they canned. Oh such memories are always there,like playing outside until dark, diging in Drag Like Pull - Elliott - Song In The Air dirt making castles,playing marbles.
Finding glass bottles and turning them in to get money to spend on ice cream truck that would come by everyday. So much to think back on,too much to list.
But picking wid blackberries and eating them right off the stickey vines that hurt but it was worth it Reply Cancel. I was a city kid from Brooklyn,NY. During the summer,we played stoop ball, and rode our bicycles up and down the block. I miss her so and just thinking of her makes me smile. Thanks for sharing with us Becca as you do with each new blog.
Hugs from Michigan. The good ole days? I remember disappearing for an entire day into the woods after packing some snacks and a book into my backpack… Reply Cancel. I spent so much time outside catching fireflies too, and frogs and grasshoppers galore, thanks for the chance to win some candy… Reply Cancel. I would dress my cat up and he would lie in the carriage, just like a doll. We lived in a large city, but times were very different back then. It was made with the old hand crank, ice and salt.
I have never tasted any ice cream that good i my life. The only problem was that I have too many in-laws with which I had to share. Wow, the good old days huh.
