Remember When

I am ashamed to say that a while back my friend Louise at her beachy Cape Cod Cupboard sent me a little tag that is called 'I remember When'.

Better late than never...

I remember when~ We used to rush home from school to watch Young and the Restless

I remember when~ We would pick cherries from the tree that was near my Grandparents back door. We would eat them until we couldn't eat any more.

I remember when~ We watched the man walk on the moon for the first time. It was the same night as the Miss America pageant, and we would have rather seen that.

I remember when~ I had a wrap around disco skirt that whirled when I twirled.

I remember when~ We rode across country facing backwards in a station wagon- our parents never even thought about seat belts!

I remember when~ My friends and I heard that Elvis died, we burst into tears and cried hysterically.


I remember when~ The best pop corn was jiffy pop, we cooked it on the stove in the metal shaker. Watch the top rise was about as exciting as life got.


I am thinking that life can't get much better than that!
Thank y'all for reminding me.
Sandi

I remember all that too! My parents had someone make a kind of platform for the back of the car so we could stretch out; did cars even HAVE seatbelts??
