but I couldn't resist joining along with sharonb in the TIF February challenge. It's about remembering...kid memories...and there are so many of them! As a mid-way Baby Boomer, I remember a good chunk of the '50s and then the '60s onward...I remember
- Kindergarten of the Air and Maggie Muggins on radio;
Our black and white television in it's cabinet -- no remote control;
Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans;Howdy-Doody (my favourite character was Clarabelle...I still have my Clarabelle facecloth puppet!);
My step-dad taking moving pictures of my sis and I playing in the snow in those Michelin Man-like snowsuits;
Learning to skate on our backyard rink;
Playing outside till it got dark or you were called for dinner -- whichever came first;
My first Kodak flash camera;
The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show!;
Canada's Centennial (1967) and the World's Fair in Montreal;
The October Crisis in Quebec and the War Measures Act;
A summer working in White Plains, NY, where I watched the Moon Walk and Prince Charles induction as Prince of Wales;
2001 -- A Space Odyssey;
Making my polyester blend wedding gown;
My new husband's blue polyester leisure suit with epaulettes and black buttons, for our honeymoon;
Our first Commodore 64...
Lots to choose from! Stay tuned...
Meanwhile, I continue to stitch on my Sumptuous Surfaces project. Here, I auditioned 2 threads, eventually choosing...? Guess!
Ooooo, I remember all these things too: I LOLed at Capt.Kangaroo and our first Commodore 64. Rather than listing all the same things, I put a link to your post on my blog at http://fibrefan.blogspot.com/. I hope this is OK - I'm new to blogging so I'm not too sure about the etiquette - I should probably have asked first.
