My Earliest Memories

WoW, this post brought back loads of memories. Going on 67 years of life for me the second month of 2021 ( if still here and kicking) Earliest memory would be the bee sting on the bottom of my foot with the little sucker being the size of my foot ~ I was 2 yrs old.

Just remember, at that age when a boy hits you He LIKES you, You answering back with revenge, is liking him as well. Mother’s advice back then. As for those saddle shoes…hated them to! BUT I had to have special soles on them due to my pigeon toe walk .

Was the only girl in Junior High that didn’t wear a bra…nothing there to hold up ….so my mom tells me. PE class was a tragic time for me.

What ever happen to the wholesome cartoon shown only one day of the week. Most are just violent and distasteful.

I am going to be sixty-two this coming November. I get to join the 2020 COVID birthdays. Maybe I’ll get a super cool mask as a present…I’m kinda kidding! Depends on the mask. I just had a thought about I wonder if they will put facemasks in a time capsule? Back to turning a year older.

I was going through my emails coming across my young friend Sarah’s blog LifeIsBetterInRed where she blogged about sitting down at the table for meals with your family which brought me back to when I was growing up sparking off memories of my youth; of my earliest memories.

When you grow older certain memories are etched in stone while others fade away like the fog over the mountains burn off as the sun gets hotter. That’s why family photos are so important at least to me. So let’s take a glimpse into my young…

My Christmas trip to Germany

Got to go to Germany for Christmas 2019 to see my new grandson who was 6 months old by the time this American Oma showed up.

Met the little one with his two older sisters and parents at the Frankfurt airport. Took us about 2 to 3 hours to get to the little village they lived in. Yes, cobble stone roads where the norm within the small village streets. Very tight, most cars weren’t the big cars like in the USA. The houses were more like cottage looking on the outside, but tight inside. There were stairs that turned like a corkscrew.

It only snowed the second day I was there

Yes, that is SOLAR PANALS on the roofs of the houses. Can’t really explain the heating system but it was very warm and toadsty indoors.

Got to sample some of this (I don’t drink but had to see what all the fuss was about!

of course the Christmas festivals were a must to see. Actually went to about 5 different local ones. A lot of walking.


I hope to go back someday, but this time while it is warmer. It was cold!!!
