The header theme this week by Gail's Man and is ""Memories of Childhood". Mac, Darla, Gail's Man, Lanny and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week.
Martha and Tom are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.
The reason I have a Ohio Buckeye Tree in my yard is that there was a Horse Chestnut Tree in Raymond's yard. He was one of my best friends and I thought I would like to have a similar tree in my yard. I wish I had a Black Cherry Tree around back. There was some delicious fruit on that tree. So, what could you find to use a nut from the tree. Well one thing is to play catch. Another thing was to put a hole in it and tie three of them to strings. You could tackle someone with that Australian weapon. We used to load the electric lines full of them.
One of my favorite places to get hot dogs was Coney Island. It used to have some wicked sauce that would really clean you out. I know it isn't as strong anymore, I tried it yesterday.
The real thing about your childhood is you can't go back. I lived on a dirt road and we had a hill behind us that was weed covered. Now this was a pretty big hill and our hunting dogs lived on top. All the beagles were called Rip, no need to think up a new name. We also had bird dogs which were Spaniels. So in relating the story my header shows the big hill (LOL) and the dirt road that is now paved. Everything shrinks from your childhood. The only thing left is the garage that was behind Dave's house were we worked on his 49 Chevy for the drag strip. My house burnt down to the ground and Dave's house was torn down. You really can't go back, there is nothing left but a memory.
