I hope you have enjoyed this weeks give away questions as much as I have. Your comments brought so many wonderful memories back to mind. I wonder sometimes if kids still enjoy the simple games of youth that we did. My grandson lives with us so he is heavily influenced by my husband and his childhood memories. His favorite past times are trains and cowboys. To see this 21st century little four year old play Marshall Dillon truly warms my heart. It amazes me how many little boys don't know how to play cowboys any more...
I guess I'm sounding kind of old. Before you know it I will be recanting stories of how "when I was a child we had to walk two miles through the snow just to get to school". I'm not quite that bad but I do remember life without cable and having only one television set and that belonged to my dad when he was home. The only remote control he had was the five children he fathered. If we didn't like what was on then we better figure out how to entertain ourselves.
I suppose every generation will have their good old days, including this current one. Time marches on, there aint' no stopping it...Really, that isn't such a bad thing.
I can't imagine living without the modern cleaning appliances I have in my home...I love my new state of the art sewing machine and the extra television I have in my craft room. Do you remember when making a long distance phone call was billed by the minute? And where would I be without the Internet and my connection to all of you.
