remember when?

does anyone else out there remember out houses?the cold wooden seat the sears and robuck tolit paper?people coming to help you get your harvest in and feeding them ?partys at the church down the road for kids at haloween so we didn,t have to give the devil any of our time?walking in the meadows and fields as a kid?just plain loving life?flying a kite in the summer sky and wishing you were the one flying?eating watermelon on the hottest days just to stay cool?going puddle jumping after a storm?watching the stars on a clear summer night?looking for the northern lights on a cold crisp winter night?laying on the grass and looking at the clouds to see animals and what ever you could make out of them?sitting on a couch all cuddled in and wrapped up in a blanket with a cup of hot coca in your hand watching the frist snow fall on a moonlite night out your window?raking a big pile of leaves and jumping in them and doing it all over again just for the fun of it?thinking about all the things I remembered made me want to know if you have good memories of things?please tell me some of your memories.this way I will know if anyone is reading this or if I am writing to my self. Posted by Picasa

In the Army in Alaska at night, looking up to the stars, air so clear, seeing the billions of stars and planets so clearly. Feeling as if I could fall off the earth and into the sky.
It made all the science fiction I read meaningless when compared with the reality of living on this planet.

SORRY that I haven't been looking at your blog lately. My computer is really bad at home and the only time I have to check the blogs is at work. I have memories similiar to those you write about. I remember hunting for fireflies on warm summer nights with a mason jar and my hands for the net. We could sit and stare at the jar for hours after. We used to play in the haymow hide and seek and jumping down into the loose hay. Sometimes we would break a bale on purpose just to have more cushion. We spent many hours wading in the creek looking for fish and we never worried about the cows upstream and the deposits they left in the water if you know what I mean. I could go on and on, but I am sure this is getting long. Hope you are well. I think of you and yours everyday. Take care and God bless!
Happy Thanksgiving!

I remember running in the wind. I would run with the wind to my back and leap and it felt like flying. I made it home from school in half the time. (I'm sure it had to do with the simple fact that I was running.)

I remember when I was very small that we lived in a large army type tent in the middle of the desert. I remember my dad made wood floors and the smell of the kerosene lamps, but I also remember going to sleep as the wind was batting against the canvas.

I also remember the small pond hidden behind the trees with water that was cold as ice.

As a small child, who knew we were literally dirt poor. It was the best place ever to live.

And no. You are not being ignored and I do check your blog everyday. I just don't comment cause sometimes I just need to keep my mouth shut and it's your place to vent and if you wanted my two cents, you would have asked for it. That and I tend to not shut up once I get started. :-)

Memories are nice but sometimes we gotta get off our butts and make new ones.

My best memories all involve the open road. There is nothing so freeing as a wide open highway and a tank full of gas, no destination. (Think Terri Clark "All I need is a tank full of gasoline..." :) I have driven the depth and width of this country, one end to the other.
