    • Thanks, Oneta! I imagine we did play hard in those days, and was mostly outside. We sure didn’t have video games to stare at, so we had to use our imagination. 🙂 Happy New Year to you, also!

  1. Always LOVE the diary entries! Thanks for sharing. Curious, were you gathering blackberries in our hometown? Don’t think I know their ‘season.’

    • Thanks, Kelly! Glad you’re enjoying reading these. Those black berries…well, our neighbor had a black berry bush/vine ? right up next to our fence. Some of it grew through to our side and I always picked off the ripe ones. It was always sometimes in the summer. 🙂

      • Good idea. I wish I’d kept my later diares though. I guess I destroyed the evidence of what was in them, because I have never seen them again. Wouldn’t be posting any of that for sure! haha
