just thought with all the worries of wars and such that this post might make some feel at ease

laying tag and hide and go seek on a summer evening.

Catching lightening bugs in a jar.
Sometimes we pinched off the glowing end and
put it on our finger for a glorious glowing ring!
(I feel so guilty! How could we do that!)

Wringer washers! What work that was,
and then if you didn't get your arm caught
in the wringer you had to lug a basket of wet
clothes to the back yard and hang them on the line.

Sprinkle bottles...remember how we had to sprinkle
down the clothes after they dried and roll them up tight
and put them back in the basket? Then came the
hard part! We ironed everything! Then came steam
irons and we threw out the sprinkle bottle thought of this tonight while the kids were out front playing the game red rover red rover won't you come over

Back then, Ken (Ken and Barbie) actually had a nub down there; you know where. Well, they tried to teach us sex education where they could, I guess. The nub is now long gone and don't say Barbie castrated him or some dumb shït like that. chuckle.gif

I remember living without electricity and running water
from June 1 'til August 31, all through the 60's and 70's.

My aunt and I went to get fresh milk twice a week, from
the old lady two bends down the road.
She ran her place with no other help than her cat.
5 cows, at the most.
Never forget the sound of her calling them in at sundown.
Magic!

Now the farm and the cows are long gone,
every cabin along the waterfront got broadband,
and you can't build a shithouse in your own backyard
without the authorities attacking.
And school starts around August 10.
Poor kids.

Yes Ken had a bulge in those days. chuckle.gif Barbie clothes were just really freaking expensive back then, probably still are, so unless we made them ourselves we just played 'naked city' lmao.gif

Ok Grandma was pretty good at making barbie clothes. She worked at a fabric factory.
