Childhood Memories

My mother found pictures of me as a child playing a form of stickball. I phrase it like that because we used a rubber ball, like stickball, but we used real bats and gloves.





I had a great childhood. wonderful family, good friends.

What I loved most was playing baseball, roller hockey and basketball. I glad that we didn't have computer games.

Through facebook, I've become reacquainted with childhood friends. Two of whom, I met nearly 50 years ago. One guy struck me out on 3 curveballs once in Little League. I never saw them coming.










It was fun. and it is fun reminiscing.

Those are great pictures and sentiments! Really delighted that you and Cathy had good childhoods. I'll just say that life became beautiful, loving and happy when I left home at 17. The best is yet to come for us all, maybe, eh?

I'm sorry that you don't have good memories of childhood.

You're so good! Thank you. Maybe I make it out to be worse than it is. Maybe having a bleeding ulcer from stress at age 4 is a physiological milestone!

Actually, my friend, I do have some great memories from childhood--most of them from time spent alone. I played with a lot of kids but found the sweet silent haven of books most to my liking. Guess that's why I'm such a recluse.

One of your clients (GS) probably drives you toward reclusiveness, eh? Has he grown up yet?
