Growing up as a child was a wonderful experience for me. I had 3 brothers and dinner time was always a treat with six of us around the Dinner table enjoying Mama's delicious cooking.
As a young person, our family would watch TV on Saturday and Sunday evenings....Mama would pop popcorn and we would sit around and watch the Ed Sullivan Show. We would see the new performers enter into the entertainment arena.
I remember seeing Stevie Wonder doing the finger poppin thing and also the Jackson 5. Elvis with his gyrating hips..and of course the BEATLES!
Shirley Temple was my favorite. I would watch "The Good Ship Lolipop" and dance along with her. Then there was that "Masked Man on the White horse"....and then the Ape Man that swung from the vines...
We would play outside till dark and come in when Mama would call out "Dinner's Ready" "Come in and wash up".
I miss those Happy, Carefree Days of youth.
I think that it is so sad that my Grandchildren spend their time on the computer or playing video games. They need to be outside, running and enjoying all of the beauty that surrounds us.
If you have Memories that you would like to share, please do!!
