I AM the KID WHO (part 3)

  • Wrote all over a wall, got in trouble, and had to spend forever erasing it. I missed watching my favorite TV show, “The Wonderful World of Disney”.
  • Had 50 cents to spend, so spent it all on penny candy. I had 50 pieces of candy in a brown paper sack, and it was good!
  • Put a weird car part in a tree, and it stayed there for years. The tree grew completely around it, with only a long wire sticking out.
  • After a permanent tooth grew in, promptly broke it in half. Spent the next many years with a silver cap on it. (the front, bottom one)
  • Would cut or tear any clothes I didn’t like, so I wouldn’t have to wear them again.
  • Was positive I saw a witch fly across the full moon, one Halloween night.

Those 2 movies, well, I’m sure they were what my parents wanted to see. Not kid movies at all. And…the millers…oh my, those were moths, we called them millers, or candle bugs, or space coasters. We had an invasion of them and it was crazy! 🙂

(It? haha the church had a sandstorm? well, I’m sure I was just talking about the weather of the day.) … Daddy plumbed (He was a master plumber) haha I wrote ‘plumbed’ – didn’t know I knew that word back then at 10 years old! … for our washing machine.

MAGIC SPELL

Standard

MAGIC SPELL

Journey back in time with me

A quiet time, oh, can’t you see?

No internet, no political lies,

No news that constantly horrifies

Travel paths we trod when young

Friends, games, having fun

Make believe all is well

Wave your wand – a magic spell
