What are some of your memories of those childhood summers of, it seems, so long ago? I was browsing through my sites and noticed this mentioned elsewhere. thought I'd post this question to you folks.
One of my fond memories of summers past, when I was so young, is eating lots of watermelons, and constantly playing baseball in the field across from our house. Spending those hot summer nights outside, playing with my friends at the time. We never stayed in, always outside playing hopscotch or something. And, that ice-cream man coming down the streets...we'd hope so, to get our ice cream cone, they were called "creamsicles" and were orange coated, with ice cream filling. I remember going to the park, sitting with the suopy, having fun.
So many fond memories of summers past, when younger. Oh, and the Iceman, bringing in that so huge block of ice each week, for my parents' very old fridge! We did not have a backyard, as dad was poor so he would use the roof of our house, it was actually an old building, with a mechanics garage downstairs. we lived in the upstairs. dad would barbecue on the roof, and even grew a small garden up there, tomatoes, etc. Here is a pic of myself, with Mom, taken up on that roof. I was about 11 yrs old then.
