The temptations of childhood, view my blog to read a little snippet. This is an adaptation of a real life experience, the prelude to the first reprimand I recall having received from my dear dad. It happened one hot summer day in the 1970's...

Were you born in the 50s 60s or 70s? I was born in 1963. I would swing on the swings at school over concrete. I drank from my hose. I played outside until dark. I drank sugary pop and chewed Bazooka gum while sucking down a Pixie stick. AND I have lived to tell about it. :)
I'm a 70s baby...
So True !! Love life back than !!!

Charm School - vintage kids. Why do we not continue enforcing lady like behavior? The girls these days are not at all charming
Books made the young girls well-read with good posture. Moppets Charm School, by Arthur Rickerby for LIFE Magazine. 1962. Rickerby’s (1921–1972) most famous works are his sports photography, especially his color photography essays, and his photographs of the Kennedy administration. His work is most noted for its realism and pioneering use of the 35 mm camera and the early zoom lens. “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” — Coco Chanel

Every single year in elementary school this is what I got for our gift exchange. In third grade I had a boyfriend who gave me one so that year I got two. I complained that I would at least not have to act surprised about getting these things when I made it to 7th grade. For that, my sister has given me one every year since. lol

this magical toy brings back so many childhood memories of awe and wonder in what BEAUTY means to a 3 yr old child. Blessed images like the stain-glass windows in the small church my family attended. And I loved the way the BIG word sounded when I said it "KuH - Li iii DEEEE oooooo kOppppp" ---- with a great big puff of air at the end.
