My Entire Childhood

by Dianne

I know some of you are still to young to remember some of these things but there are some of us that will remember each and every item----I am one of them.

Good morning...

Lincoln Logs!! Of course! A "must have!"

And once when I was a child...my Father did something that really hurt my feelings....but I awakened the next morning to a new set of Tinkertoys!

My Father...always with the things...couldn't just give a hug and say I'm sorry. He bought his way thru my life...

Opps! Seems the Tinkertoys have sparked some anger...lol

My avatar is a card I just got from Tina. I love it and it makes a great daily reminder... ;)

Today in History.....

On June 12, 1942, Anne Frank, a German-born Jewish girl living in Amsterdam, received a diary for her 13th birthday; in it, she wrote, "I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to with anyone, and I hope you will provide much support and comfort." (Less than a month later, Anne and her family went into hiding from the Nazis.)

Michael Well, it sure is nice to see you here today even if you do look a little green around the gills. Or is that pesto sauce? Well, never mind, it's just nice to have you hop in and plop yourself down. Nice card from Tina. I love how she's so sentimental.

Just_Lin said...

Dianne I know I played with Tinker Toys and the Log Cabin but they were probably my brother's.

Dianne/Denver said...

Michael---it is great to see u in the nest today. We always need our history list and to see your avatar for the day.

JL -- I think they were my brothers toys too. This video had a lot of toys on it but it wouldn't print

Just_Lin said...

Dianne I really loved my Tiny Tears doll. I still have her sitting on a shelf in my bedroom.

sacBarb said...

Dianne, I never had those toys because my brother was 9 years older, but I did get Lincoln logs for my oldest son. He loved playing with them.

I hope the fires aren't too close to you and you are safe.

Michael, Nice to see you plop in first today.

J/L, I'm researching things to do in Sac. You'd think I would already know, huh!

Just_Lin said...

SacBarb We can go to a movie one night, go to an Indian casino, check out all the restaurants, go to Tahoe..... We'll figure it out. :)

Dianne/Denver said...

Sounds like fun JL. Can u come to Denver and do all that as it is quite boring here.

Maureen said...

JUST LIN and SAC BARB...i wanna come to your slumber party! I say go into town and get your pictures taken in old time western garb...saloon gals! And look in all the cool galleries.

Maureen said...

I am on a mini vacation! I don't have to go back to work until Monday! I was actually supposed to have started today...but I forgot!!

Dianne/Denver said...

sacBarb said...

Mo, you are welcome to come to our slumber party. I have plenty of floor space and couches.

Tina, Lynn and I went to the Capitol Bldg. the first time she was here, but the Gov. wasn't there. It Arnold then. Maybe if we go back, Jerry will be there.

J/L, Have you ever taken the Vallejo ferry to Pier 39? Someone told me about it today. Lynn already said she would like to go to Tahoe, and it's only 90 minutes from here.

Who else wants to come to Sac for a slumber party?

Maureen said...

DIANNE...yes, I stayed!! I was actually told yesterday I was on vacay starting today. But I hadn't finished payroll, so I went in. I really thought I started next Tuesday. It's ok since I have no real plans,anyhow. I was going to go to Milwaukee for a wedding, but it just wasn't in the cards...credit cards!!!

Maureen said...

SAC BARB...I really would love to spend some time with you, LYNN and JUST LIN. If only you lived about 2500 miles closer! I know you guys will have a great time.

Maureen said...

TINA...great card!

Maureen said...

DIANNE...how are u and Louis feeling? I hope everyday is better then the previous.

Jodi said...

DIANNE - We had Lincoln Logs growing up. When we were cleaning out Dad's house last year we found those and all my brothers Tonka Toys and my Barbie's. Good memories!!

Jodi said...

MICHAEL - Love the card...and u!! SWTEPBB ;)

Jodi said...

SLIN & BARB - When is said slumber party?

Jodi said...

MO - Enjoy your vacay!! Too bad it wasn't in the card for you to come to Milwaukee....so close :(

Jodi said...

Jodi---have a good day at work. I'm always so glad to see u on the blog. Ive been asleep om top of the bed and just woke up. Now I need to get into the bed and go back to sleep ...which won't be hard.

Mo---we have good days and bad days here with Louiss recovery. It so hasn't gone as we thought it would go. He cam walk very slowly and doesn't do it as often as they say. I just dont see the old fight that used to be in Louis. he sits in recliner with blanket over his legs and sleeps a lot. He's still on a lot of meds but I just think there should be more energy. I call thevdr and tell them and then they call back and Louis tells them he is doing good then is groaning an hour later. We go to dr on Monday and I will be speaking up yet again. Probably sorry you asked. It just gets frustrating for both of us.
