Tagged with I Remember....



Gosh, I have been tagged by ummmmm? Oh Yeah! Red Mary Janes! LOL. Ok seriously I have to stop and think cause I've read a couple of these lists and I don't want to repeat anything they said.

I remember playing with the Weeble Wobble Tree House.

I remember when people would come over to visit and give you a couple of coins out of their pocket and you would run to your Colonel Saunders piggy bank.


I remember balloon pants with the zipper at the ankle. Ewww!

I remember when the farmer's didn't mind you making forts in their corn fields. ( Never to be done again after watching "Children of the Corn"!!)

I remember when Hostess made cherry, orange and grape flavored potato chips. It was short lived! ick!

I remember playing "Nicky, Nicky Nine Doors" and getting caught red handed on more than one occasion!

I remember my first real kiss..... grade 8 at K. Tuplins' house!! The lights went out and M. Biggar FRENCH kissed my NOSE!!! lol lol lol......

I remember the taste of my grandma's homemade bread....mmmmmm......I can smell it now.

I remember when you wanted something really big, you had to wait til Christmas to get it.

I remember when kids in the neighborhood could go out and play for hours on end and our parents didn't worry.

I remember taking my tin lunch can to school and not wanting the cool kids to see me with it....paper bags were in...

I remember in 1979 they said the world was going to end...I was petrified.

I remember when we were one of the only homes in Victoria By The Sea without indoor pluming....remember this.

I remember sneaking under the couch after bedtime to watch Gilligan's Island when my mom and dad weren't looking.

I remember my dads Eskimo kisses.

I remember watching Star Wars and The Circus with Donnie and Marie Osmond with my brother and sister every Sunday when we would go visit my grandparents.

I remember the Dicky Dee ice cream bicycle.

Hi Deb,

I'll have to do this one. I haven't ever been tagged before.
I like one of the others that commented will have to do it a little at a time.
So many wonderful memories and I had some of the ones you had.
