This-n-That Thursday

Things I miss:
  • Coke ICEEs
  • My Mama's peach ice cream
  • SweeTarts
  • "Here Come the Brides"
  • That little pot of paste with the brush in the middle from first grade
  • Paper dolls
  • Charles Chips
  • Swing the Statue
  • All the night cricket noises
  • My Mama
  • Taking a bath and going back out to play until dark
  • "The Big Valley"
  • Lee Majors
  • Bologna
  • Fried bologna sammies
  • The Sealtest milkman
  • Jumping on the bed
  • Unscrewing the top of the lightning bugs' jar under the covers
  • Having no cares
  • Playing with dolls and matchbox cars
  • Waking up and starting it all over again.
Wonder what I can bring back....What do you miss?

I'm listening to the night cricket noises right now...

I miss listening to the night crickets without worrying about what ungodly hour the alarm clock was set to go off the next day.

Sally said...

Wonderful things to miss; you could still jump on the bed. :)

Sitting on the stoop after dark and listening to the big kids transitor radios while they hung out leaning on the parked cars ...

You had me at "fried bologna" and "paper dolls."

I miss my bff Jimmy who grew up and became an adult I don't know.

My Gramma's house. Pretending to be asleep while my Mom and aunts chatted so I could hear the 'good stuff'. My Mom.

Colorforms
Running through the sprinklers
Slip 'n' Slides
Being able to eat outside in the summer without buring up!


Have a super day!

Lazy summer days on our farm porch swing.

I miss running through the spinkler, spending carefree days at the beach and the Good Humor man.

My Mom, paper dolls, bazooka bubble gum, the Colorado mountains and weather under 90 degrees:)

I think you need to come for a visit. We have Coke Icees here and there.

Country Girl said...

Me? Being skinny!

Donna said...

My list would be very similar,LOL! Lee Majors! And fried balogna sandwiches were a frequent dietary staple during college years!

I am pretty much with you on all of your things you miss. Fried Bologna sammies are a big hit in our house and family! My Mom for sure-she would enjoy our life so much. I miss all our kitties that have passed on. I miss the fried egg sandwiches wrapped in wax paper that Mom fried for me that we could eat at school IF we went to morning Mass. Enjoy your Friday Lauren!

Sigh, bare feet, riding my bike all day, and I mean all day, we even ate our lunch on the bikes. Sleeping out in the backyard.

Paxie said...

Peanuts in coke bottles and the Tom the ice cream man. My bike with a basket and everything you mentioned!

Fried bologna I still have but no Charles Chips!

I'd love for milk to be delivered again. I have all David's matchbox cars. If we see each other again, we can play!! LOL

Trolls and Barbie :)

Karen Deborah said...

good manners, free speach, a time when there was no such thing as politically correct, a job and the paycheck, 25cents buying 5 candy bars, riding a bike all day without being sore,.....and you.

Joanie said...

those icees....reminded me of "frozen cokes" kids today are missing out!

and, how about home made "snow" ice cream?

Hilary said...

Hopscotch, Champ and those toys which looked like handheld cone shaped cages to fling and catch pingpong balls. If you know what I'm talking about, can you remember what they're called?

I'm SO with you....Coke Icees...omg. Dolls (paper, rag and porcelain), playin' and the joy of candy. [happy sigh] Same with Lee Majors and 'Big Valley!' Man, Heath was gorgeous.

I also miss bike rides w/my siblings/friends, Big Wheels, my Grandma, phone calls w/friends that came naturally.
