Yeah! I Remember That!

I just have to share this fantastic post from the Can You Hear Me Now? blog.

Here's just a tiny bit of it:
I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk,
Sittin' on the porch,
Simon Says,
Kick the Can,
Red light, Green light,
Chocolate milk,
Going home for lunch,
Penny candy from the store,
Hopscotch,
Butterscotch,
Skates with keys,
Jacks,
Mother May I?


This blogger has certainly revived a lot of childhood memories for me. My childhood years were in the 40's and 50's, but I taught Elementary School from the 70's until 2001, so I recognize almost every reference he makes. What fun to take such a nostalgic look at the past.

In fact, there are a few fun times on this list that I had already started drafting posts about, before I read his blog!! Ain't bloggin' fun??

Thanks for the link Dirty...or should I call you Ms./Mrs./Miss Butter?

I know there must be a story behind that name. Have you shared it with us yet and if so where can I find it to read it?

I wanted to make sure I haven't misled you in any way. I did not write that piece. I do not know who did. I only know that I ran across it one day while going through my Word files and thought it would make a great post. Looks like I was correct about that.

If the author sees it and doesn't like me using it and asks me to remove it...I certainly will. I'm not a thief or a plagiarist.

Well, your post is a great piece for strolling down memory lane, even if you don't get credit for writing it, but just credit for posting it for all to enjoy!!

As for Dirty Butter (DB)? You'll find an explanation on our Dirty Butter Estates website :).

I was born in 69 and I remember more than half of those. I remember playing those games in the early evenings before dark...had to go in when it got dark :-)

Did you catch lightning bugs, Susan? That was so much fun, and I don't think children do that much any more, do they? I do remember how badly my hands stunk after I played with them, just like it was yesterday. Great memory.
