A bit nostalgic this morning. These are a few of my memories. I have a million more. How about you?
Captain Kangaroo and Friends
Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris and Natasha
Archie and Jughead
Nancy Drew was a teenaged girl detective who nsolved mysteries in a series of books by Carolyn Keene. I loved them at a 10 or 11 year-old.
We had one of these in our living room. Sat, legs folded, in the parlor to hear our favorite shows. Like Gunsmoke, Jack Benny, Our Miss Brooks, The Shadow
And now I'm sitting here remembering the most delicious
tastes and flavors of the toasted sandwiches that used
to be cooked in the Jaffel Iron that used to be placed
directly into the red coal embers of the old stoves.
I can remember Tarzan and Hop Harrigan on the old radios,
but don't recall The Shadow, although I used to enjoy it as a serial
that was run before the main movie at our local Theatre.
Oh dear the sweet memories....
My Mum had this same sewing machine
and when the top lid was opened up
for the machine to stand in place,
there were pretty pink and white flowers
running along the top from the needle side
to the wheel, where material binding was
wound around so that the unwanted pins
could be placed in.
I also remember that every once in a while,
Because I was smaller, Mum used to give me
a cloth with some polish on it, to get down and
polish the treadle part at the bottom.
Years later, Mum taught me how to sew on this one.
Great to be reminded again Kooner.
Oh,yes. My mom had one in the basement. It got pretty damp down there on wash day,
