Memories.... Some Of My Fondest..... I remember when i was only a youngster, playing hopscotch, and baseball and tag with boys & girls alike... those were the days! We were a family of 7 altogether, mom, dad, 3 brothers and 1 sister. We didnt have much money, but there was lots of love to go around. I remember when dad would have tis man come once a week, usually Saturday mornings, and put a HUGE block of ice in our fridge. i never forgot this, as it seemed so big! And, sitting on the kitchen floor, would be 2 large bags, one with powdered skim milk, does anyone remember that? and as well, one large bag with rolled oats. In those days, they weren't flavoured either! So, for breakfast, we get rolled oats, topped with powdered, LUMPY skim milk! And, we had this very old stove in kitchen, when the toaster wouldnt work, we'd just stick a knife into the bread and toast it over an element. But,it actually tasted good! Every morning dad would line all five of us kids up for a large teaspoon of cod liver oil...yuck! but yu know, it sure kept us from being sick. (and this wasnt sweetly flavoured either) I remember quite a bit from those days, some good memories and some bad, but for some strange reason, i cannot remember the childhood fiends i played with...isnt that strange. One girl does stand out, but that is only because while playing one day, when i was 12,i broke my finger. I remember as well going on the bus every saturday with dad down to this radio shop, where he'd pick up a part or two for another project. He was into fixing up old radios & tv's, as when he was in the air force, he was a mechanic and maintained the air planes and so on...i think he flew once or twice, but had a bad ear, so he opted to just stay on ground and do this job. I remember my sister and i had to sleep togewther, and it seemed the only contact we had was pulling each others' hair! I swear she has a bald spot to this day hahaha....I also remember a time especially when i was only about 5 years old, was playing and cut my knee on some glass, but this stands out because i remember my father carrying me on his shoulders all the way to the hospital,then back home in the middle of the night. but anyway, there a so many more warm childhood memories that come to mind, but im running out of space here. It has been fun reminiscing a bit, makes me feel close again to mom & dad, rest their souls. These memories are ours to treasure. Oh....another memory is of my dad getting me in the kitchen every sunday night, to try to teach me how to cook. The thing here is, whatever i tried to make and the results were always terrible, my brothers had to eat! hahaha...they still kid me about this , but it is a fun memory. And before dad passed away, he'd come up to my house, to have dinner with hubby , my son and myself, and he once said "You finally learned how to cook" well, i am no chef, but hubby has survived 36 years now on my cooking so...Dianne68
PS My Mother & myself ( eleven at the time) up on the roof of the old building we lived in. Dad actually had vegetable plants on a shelf up there, they grew pretty darn good!
