Childhood Memories Friday: Trading School Pictures

School pictures: do you remember them? School pictures seemed to be a much bigger deal when I was a kid than they are now. We always ordered quite a few of them, enough that I could take a supply to school with me to trade with my friends. My mom alw...

Childhood Memories Friday: Church Choir

Post contains affiliate links. Going through old photos, I came across this — kids’ church choir, I would guess around 1975. When I was a kid, church choir was a big deal. It was kind of like an extra-curricular activity, meeting for a ho...

Childhood Memories Friday: Doll Dishes

Ah, childhood — remember pulling out your favorite doll, and … but wait. Honestly, that’s not really a memory I have, because I don’t remember doing much playing with dolls. I did have some — Buttercup comes to mind R...

Childhood Memories Friday: Piano Lessons

43 years ago this month, I began piano lessons. I was thinking about this over Christmas, when I was at my dad’s house. It is just a short walk from there to the home of my first piano teacher, so I walked by and snapped a photo. So many times...
