Re: Your childhood games

not too many games i was not only the only one in the family i was the only girl in the neighborhood my dad used to get all the boys together and get a baseball game going either in the street of one of the vacant lots when i was young there were a lot of them but when i got older someone had built houses on most of them i didn't care to play base ball and the boys didn't really care to play with a girl but i had my books and when i started to read i could share whatever adventure was going on in the story so i was reasonably happy when i was in school there was one game i liked a little and that was socker i didn't have to hit it just with my hands but could hit it with any part of your body

Re: Your childhood games

when i started to get a little older we lived the second house from the corner a bunch of the kids woud gather on the corner under the street light and play a game but my mother wouldn't let mre off the porch after dark i had to stay there with her unless the two of us would take a walk eithe down the block and over to the drug store where we woud get a walking sundae a cup cone with your choice of ice cream and topping my favorite was chocolate ice cream with pine apple sauce or we would walk down the street to the dairy and get a regular ice cream cone one time going home i dropped the ice cream out of the cone but when i looked in the bottom of the cone there was a free slip so i got another cone

Re: Your childhood games

Beckie that reminds me of Charlie Brown and his kite eating tree

(Beckie)

You probably won`t believe this but it`s really true, Troy... When my siblings and i were younger, we use to fly kites alot, we lived in the country and wide open spaces were all around us however we chose to stay where the trees and wires were plentiful. (need i say more?) but one day my dad made a large pole and a y at the top, with this handy tool, so cleverly constructed my dad would always rescue our kites from anywhere they got stuck...but there`s more, when he made this, little did he know he would have another purpose for it, he would retieve all the bird feeders as well, without a fuss, he`d gracefully get them all down, refill them and return them in the same manner. this was also a favorite thing to do .. helping feed all the birds. what great memories !! sorry to have gone on so, but thank you, the memories are sweet and always good to think back on, Love, Beckie

Re:Beckie & All- Your childhood games

my dad did make me kites and fly them with me i was in no way neglected just because i was a girl dad got me my first bycicle and taught me how to ride it also my first pair of roller scates the kind that clamp on your shoes but i never got any good till i was old enough to get a pair of shoe skates and go to the rink and a tricycle though before that i had a three wheeled kiddie car i'm afraid the ones like you see in the advertisements real little cars with motors would have been a little beyond us we didn't even get our first real car till 1934 a 32 chivie dad drove it till 53 when he finally got what i referred to ever after as the new car a 53 chivie bellaire it was light blue and so pretty i remember once when i was little that when i grew up i was going to have a car that was robins egg blue he said well maybe when you grow up they will be making cars that color the flashiest car i had seen at that time was my grandfathers brown Hupmobile

Re: Your childhood games

one of my favorite pasttimes less than two blocks from us there was a big swimming pool it had a low board and a high board many an evening i would beg my mother mom lets go over and watch them swim i didn't like to be in the water much myself my father and i both had the same kind of ears if water got into them especially water with chlorine it couldn't escape and we would wind up with an earache i never tried to go in the pool that was close that seemed to be mostly for adults or older teenagers though my aunt would take me to the YWCA pool she was a strong swimmer in fact that was where she and my uncle met each other i heard someone tell the story about my grandfather when my father wa born in 1900 they lived in Keokuckk Iowa right on the Mississippi they said he would go on the boats and dive off the highest part of them another reason i did not care to be in the water i was and am an asthmatic and i didn't like the pressure of the water on my chest

Re: Cleaning Carpet

the worst and most stubborn stain i ever ran into was where my husband had sat for years and smoked if it sticks to our lungs that way i understand why they say it is hazardous. he did finally lose lung to cancer and though they thought they had gotten it all a year later it reappeared in his liver after that he lived three months i am still wondering when they will outlaw nicotine as they did the barbituates the heavy addicting sleeping pills and i now since i came in here eleven years ago there are medications i gave that they don't use anymore i don't know about the nicotine i think there is too much money involved

Re: Gender

i was first subjugated to this kind of thinking in the yeat of Spanish i took in high school all the nouns were either masculine or feminine and you not only had to memorise the noun but what kind of the to use with it la for female and el for male if we go this way are we going to change our definite articles or just forget about them the way they do in Latin or Russian then we would probably have to do like latin does and learn what ending to put on the noun i thought by inventing the single word the we had gone beyond that or have the people who want gender specific even thought of this if we are going to change the english language this drasticly lets just learn another at least that would increase your vocabulary

Re: NEW GREAT!!!

sometimes they give nature every chance to take it's course with me they waited 48 miserable hours of course that was in 1950 then they didn't decide to do a c section until after ex rays showed she never could have been born normally i was just too short for her to turn and start into the birth canal normally after the ex ray the dr. came and said we are going to have to take it do you mind by that time i wouldn't have cared if they had hit me in the head with a HAMMER just put me to sleep they gave me cyclopropane and oxygen old fashioned now but it worked it was like i sunk into a black hole and then came up when i came too the nurse was standing at the end of the bed saying you have a beautiful little girl all i could see was a red blob i realise now i didn't have my glasses on so the first time i really saw her was the next morning when they brought her to nurse but i was so tired i was afraid i would go to sleep and let her fall off of the bed and it was the old hospital beds that were so high i do know they had moved me because there was a woman in the first room they put me in that had milk fever my husband didn't call my folks till it was all over which didn't please my mother at all the worst part of a c section back then was you could only have two it is different now but they said do not get pregnant for two years they fitted me with a diaphram and gave me all kind of instructions and Vickie was a planned c section and they ligated the tubes my husband and i had a lot of arguments over that i didn't like it but at the end of the second pregnancy i was so sick i said ok go ahead but i was naughty i hadn't taken the precautions they outlined Mary was born July 21st 1950 Vickie July 3rd 1952 i didn't want them so far apart in age then when Vickie died i felt so guilty for years but in the years i worked for mental health they finally convinced me not to feel guilty one time i was talking to my older daughter she said i really felt guilty too i said why it was certainly nothing you did she said but i was older i was supposed to take care of her we finally agreed it was gods will for whatever reason now girls can have three or four c sections i think they do them different
