Memory Monday....Our Entertainment As Children.....and more!
Can you remember what you did for entertainment when you were a kid? I can....We played Hop Scotch, Red Rover, May I, Chinese Checkers and Hide and Seek. Then when we got tired of doing that we build play houses in the woods. I remember sweeping out a clean ":room" and placing rocks around it. We would slice potatoes and put them in salt water and thought they were good. We didn't know about the X-Box, ipods, ipads and iphones. I remember one time, I had a new pair of jeans. I must have been around seven or eight. I had worn them so long they woiuld have stood up by their self when I took them off. My Mother finally got them off of me and put them in the wringer washing machine. I got them out of the washing machine and put them on wet. My Daddy must have been close by, because I looked up and he was coming throught the apple orchard. As he came by one tree he broke off a limb. He took the jeans off me and switched my wet legs. You wouldn't believe how much more it hurts when your legs are wet. I learned my lesson and never again did I try to get ANYTHING out of the washing machine to wear before it was ready.
