I AM the KID WHO (part 2)

Standard

I AM the KID WHO (part 2)   … see part 1 here http://wp.me/p3RE1e-3hU

  • went horseback riding in huge empty fields, every Saturday morning. Now, where I used to ride, is a main shopping area here in town, with businesses all around. Here’s me on a horse named Joey, my favorite one.

  • moved a rubber ball, a few inches, by using only my mind thoughts
  • ate Elm tree leaves … they tasted good
  • saw my first horror movie, the 1961 film called,”Gorgo”, and wasn’t scared. I still like horror movies.
  • got a notification from a Ouija board, that I’d get a puppy dog. It named a specific date, and it all came true. Here’s Dusty!

  • had to wear ugly, brown, lace up shoes, with added arch supports,when all her friends were wearing cute sandals and mary jane shoes.
  • had to practice saying the word, ‘funeral’, because I kept saying, ‘FUN -eral’. I couldn’t figure out  what was so fun about funerals.
  • fell off my bike, got a scar on my knee, and destroyed a library book in the process. Then, I successfully (I think) hid torn up library book in the shelves. Oh, my first bike just happened to be a boy’s bike. Why, I don’t know. I didn’t like it, but now wish I had it, as I think it was an original Schwinn. (it may have been a Huffy, and the Schwinn came later?)

Here’s me, my infamous bike, and the ugly oxford shoes.

SWALLOWED UP

On a clear, sunny day, the ocean blue swallowed them up.

Only their bicycles knew what happened.

They aren’t talking.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 41

Time for another SYW with questions from Cee, and answers from me! 🙂

***

Q1 – Do you believe in love at first sight?

Sure do. When I first saw each of my children, and each of my grand-children!

Q2 – Your first car?

I think it was a 60 something Ford Falcon. Not sure of the year model, maybe 62? My dad bought it for me when I was in high school. I think it was a standard, where you have to shift gears, but it was on the steering column. I put flower power stickers on the side, so it would be ‘cool’ haha.  I drove it until after I got married and we got the ’65 mustang.

Q3 – Who taught you to ride a bike?

I don’t remember. I probably figured it out myself. I had this huge blue bike I’d ride around and around the kitchen table. Then, it was decided the bike was way too big for me, so it got traded in on another smaller one. It was a cool bike, but at the time, to my horror, it was a “boy’s” bike! It was orange and white … a Huffy, which I think was a good brand? Anyway I can’t remember if I had training wheels or not, seems I might have for awhile. Can’t remember any other ones I had, until I was grown up.

Q4 – Ugly and rich, or beautiful and poor?

Neither.

Q5 – What was the first dish you learned to cook?

I wrote in my diary when I was 9 or 10 years old, that I made my first cake. I had a kids cookbook. It was a very simple, plain vanilla type cake, and it turned out good! 🙂 Funny story… That day I wrote I’d made it, was on a Jan. 6th. Many years later, one of my daughters birthday was on Jan. 6th. So, I wound up making many more cakes over the years on Jan. 6th. 🙂
