I remember growing up with Shrinky Dinks, Hippity hops and view master.
We played outside in the dirt, dug for crawdads in the creek and we lived.
There was silly puty, slinky and the big wheel.
We could play for hours with jack rocks, batons and romper stompers.
Phones used to have cords and beepers were cool.
We had TV with only 4 channels and Captain Kangaroo was my favorite morning show.
I remember when HBO first came about
and I know the connection between Aluminum foil and the TV antenna.
We didn't have a wi fi but we had a Hi fi.
Speaking of birthday,
We came back from the beach on Sunday, and Mom had a birthday dinner for the family that evening. Yep, the whole family. There is four of us with birthdays in May. It's like having Christmas. We grilled steaks.
Mom is the best. She always asks us each to choose a dessert and she will make it. We all put in our request and yes, you guessed it. Four desserts all together!
Its back to work today. I'm sure my husband has a nice dinner planned for me when I get home as I can rest from such a busy weekend and enjoy some quality time with him. ....and more cake.
