Hi Vicky, My favorite thing to do was to take my favorite book of the moment— there were so many — 😀 and climb up onto the shed roof where the oak leaves hid me. Then when the screams for my presence became too obnoxious to ignore, I’d climb down and sneak back into the house where I’d plead bad hearing. LOL
That sounds like a brilliant system for summer! Good for you, Doris!
My favorite thing was playing with the kids in my grandmother’s neighborhood. We played four-square, jump rope, jacks, relay races. I’ve kept in touch with one of the families and my sons had a chance to meet their family this summer as we went on a cruise together.
Thanks for stirring my memories.
I’d forgotten about four-square! Thank you for sharing your full-circle story. That’s beautiful.
I have read the extremely detailed disclaimer and agree to the terms and (ahem) extremities.
As a kid way back in the day, my ultimate favorite thing to do was to ride horses with my sister. We rode for miles and miles, jumping creeks, racing through hayfields and plodding lazily along rivers. Life was good.
Here is part of a poem I wrote about riding::
Two little sisters, eight and ten,
Dashed up to the farm and then
Jumped on horses for a ride
Raced the field, side by side.
Galloping without a care
Going here and going there.
A poem! You’ve taken this over the top, Rachel. I love it. I can see two blond girls smiling on their joy ride together. Love it! Thank you so much for sharing, Rachel.
Lovely sunset, Vicky. One of my favorite things to do was to swim in or row on Silver Lake while my family stayed in the park in our trailer. I also loved hiking the dunes there and visiting the village in the middle of the dunes that a hermit made out of driftwood. His name was Swift Lathers. How I can remember that is beyond me.
Swift Lathers? That is the best name! We were just talking about Silver Lake this weekend. The dune rides are so fun and it’s amazing to see how the dunes shift and change from year to year. Thanks so much for sharing.
As a young kid, one of my favorite things was to run through the sprinkler with my sister. It often ended with me picking UP the sprinkler and dousing her the best that I could. As a teenager, I enjoyed going to north beach in South Haven and flying kites. Not only was it fun but it usually brought interested (and cute) boys closer to find out what I was doing.
When I was very young, my favorite thing was to run through the sprinkler with my sister. It often ended with me picking UP the sprinkler and trying to douse her as best as I could. As a teenager, my favorite thing was to go to South Haven and fly kites. Not only was it fun but it often brought interested (and cute) boys over to check it out.
I loved playing in the sprinkler with my sister too. Sometimes we’d just play with the hose and pretend we were running a car wash. My parents didn’t mind that one!
