Back in MY day....
We ate bologna and cheese sandwich's ALL THE TIME with Doritos and pickles to top it off!
We played outside and made forts.
We played outside until we were MADE to come in at dinner time.
Back in MY day......
We all (20 of us or more) congregated at my Grandmother's (still do) and ate AT the dinner table like Kings and Queens and discussed everything under
We were spanked with switch's!!
We drank out of the water hose if we were thirsty.
We played at the barn where we were NOT allowed to go!!
We read dirty joke books, played truth or dare, and watched movies like Faces of Death!
We took eggs, bread, and Milk to the elderly and we often visited the sick at the hospital to help out.
We learned about Jesus by not going to church but by talking about the scriptures and what they meant to us.
Women learned how to cook while the boys learned how to work in the field (as well as the girls sadly).
We rode 4-wheelers to the store to buy cigs for the parents.
We listen to the older group play their instruments in the kitchen (its BIG) and sing songs of the "times". (really cool stuff that was!!)
We learned how to love one another unconditionally!!!!
I loved my growing up days and although there was pain and confusion at times....I loved it and will always appreciate growing up with cousins, Aunts,
friends, and the like!
Peace and love to you all!!!!! xoxoxo
