Sunny Side Up

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave
behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”
- Anatole France -

This week’s end of the week post is a video that some of my readers will relate to, particularly those who were kids in the 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s.



This was certainly my childhood. Was it yours?

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

  1. This is brilliant, Martha! I'm one of those kids! It's sad to think that so many kids will never experience a lot of the pleasures we had of simply being a child.

    1. Yes, it's truly sad. A lot of kids these days spend too much time indoors in front of their computers or their video games. The only time we stayed inside when I was a kid was when the weather was really bad.

  4. Ha ha yeah, ain't that the truth? I feel kind of sorry for kids today who don't have unstructured free time just to explore and be kids.

    1. You said it, Debra. Seems like a lot of kids have their time micromanaged these days. Very sad.

  8. So true! I remember coming in the house at the end of the day being tired and hungry from all the fresh air and play!! I think we learned 'common sense' more readily back then, Martha.

    1. I think you're right, Jim. I barely have any memories of playing indoors. We spent so much time outside that we didn't know what the inside of other kids' homes looked like!
