I share a memory with you…

Growing up, my parents loved to do things the long way when it came to vacations or recreational leisure. As a child, these were some of my fondest and closest memories that I will think back to forever. As you read on my storesite on my homepage, I go one about growing up in the country, and living in a owrld completely unaware that there was anything outside the diameters of our lil Pennsylvanian town in the mountains except for the beutiful landscapes of Maine, where my we would go to visit our family members who lived up north.

A fond memory that I often think of… and Love to re create  as often as I can, is, our fire ring in the back yard on summer nights. There is something about being a child that is so innocent, that the practice of something so much fun, is something that when gone without for too long, you grow up to miss. As a daughter born later in life in the family, most of the group gatherings around the fires in the yard ended when I got older, as family grew older, and my generation of the family started having lives of their own as well.  I think of those fires, listenig to a cross between country music and oldies- baking “Mountain pies” in the hot coals below. When it was time for bed, I would always sneek a peek of the adults from my bedroom window to see why it was always sooo important for me to go to bed ontime. As an adult, I was able to uncover all those secrets, as knowing that when “The kids go to bed” that was a time for our parents to let loose, and let “their” hair hang down. As a teenager, I remembered the parking lot being full, the ost beautiful of days, the games that adults as well as children would play such as egg battles, water balloons, and 3 legged races. The family would gather around the fireplace for as early on back as the old films on the reel were being used. We actually had to have them transferred to VHS in 80s, and eventually to DVD in the 90’s, whereas, I have a feeling in the newer era… we will soon be transferring them yet again to Blue Ray..lol.
