We were going to play the Friends trivia game this evening, but couldn't find it. So I ended up hanging out in the game room listening to some of my "new" records. Then I broke out mom and dad's old country 45s. Now I'm listening to my favorite record ever! It's one that belonged to my dad when he was little. It's Huckleberry Hound- The Great Kellogg's TV Show record. It came out in 1959. It has three stories on it and all the characters are played by only two guys.
I've always been a hands-on kid, and I dreamed of building a train like the one on the record sleeve. I had a couple of wheels and axles off an old wagon and I nailed then onto a piece of plywood to try to make a train car, but it didn't turn out very well...oh well, I spent lots of afternoons staying out of trouble thinking about my train!
Added later- tonight I put my books in my bookcase for the first time since the move!
When I was little I would pull all my books off the shelves and reorganize by title, author, type, etc. just for fun. Tonight I pulled out my books, three boxes, and realized that a lot of my paperbacks were gone...not the Christan romances still in the old house or the books in the two tubs in the storage building, or the 30 or so at school...so I looked around my room and found a fourth box :) I decided that I have too many books...and I love that :) I ended up packing a box and a half worth back up to put in the attic area. And now my bookshelf looks great
Wow, sounds like I only read kid's books...but I like autobiographies, historical fiction, some nonfiction, young adult books, children's books, Christan romances, and Cinderella variations like Ella Enchanted and Just Ella. Ok, I'm just yammering now...I'll shut up and go to bed :)
