I am having hip problems, my walking has now, almost ceased. I have joined an aqua fit class, hoping this will help keep the loss of activity level, less harmful on my hips. The most walking I do now is hanging onto a grocery cart, in a grocery store.

Thank - You all for visiting my page on Spark People Page!

Do you remember playing "Pick Up Sticks" as a kid? I just found a box the other day, nothing like the old ones, there are no sharp points on them anymore. How would you play without that sharp point to divide them, or to tip a stick from on top of others?

The First McDonald Restaurant - In Burnaby B.C. ca...
The neighborhood kids were real mad, so we marched with signs trying to appose it.
We marched everyday after school and every weekend for a couple months.
It was to be built right over our favourite pond for ice skating and collecting tadpoles.

One day we arrived at the pond, there stood McDonald's instead of our favourite pond.
We were really disappointed, dragging our signs back home. We vowed we would never eat there!

LYNDALOVES2HIKE ~ Yes I remember having an old typewriter.

My first job out of high school, was processing unemployment UI claims, The obsolete machine was from floor to the ceiling and took up a whole wall! A dozen or more people sat in a wee chairs processing UI CLAIMS.

About 30 years later, I was driving to work, when the news on my car radio, started. The radio announcer stated "Anyone looking for their U.I. cheques, this month will be delayed because the machine is obsolete and is being replaced.

Hi! ROSE6040 ~
I was trying to remember the Double Dutch game and also we played a Chinese Elastic band skip rope, where one had to wrap the elastic sewing band around your ankle, in several different directions without falling over.

Remember when girls were not allowed to wear jeans, to school? One blistery cold winter day the 3 mile trek, to school and home again was enough to ignore the rules. I was called to the principles office and handed a week suspension from school and sent home. Since my mother had recently passed away from cancer. I handed the notice to my father when he came home from work. He smiled and said "You timed it well missy, you get out for Christmas holidays the end of next week! We both had a good laugh over it!

Before hair dryers were available for home use.
What did you use?

I used to used my mom's Electrolux vacuum cleaner to dry my hair!
Worked quite well. Shove the hose end at the exhaust area, instead of the suction end!

Yes I do. I had a poodle skirt and loved it.

Do you remember Howdy Doody and Clarabelle.
