I used to love walking up the dirt roads all around my house and listening to the sounds and smells coming from the houses of neighbors.  Down where my house was we could only hear and see Brenda's house, or maybe a train. If I heard a sound from there I pretty we'll knew what and who it was.   Brenda did have a close neighbor  on the other side. We often went through the garden gate and climbed  a mulberry tree. I don't remember mulberries smelling nice.

Playing Trains

What has an Australian TV quiz program called “Millionaire Hot Seat”, along with the Nebraska Panhandle, got to do with New Zealand steam trains? Enter YouTube into the equation and here’s how it works.

A question in the quiz program pertained to an American panhandle, which reminded me that there used to be a song with “panhandle” it it, but I couldn’t remember the name of it. YouTube came up with plenty of panhandles but the only song I found was nothing like the one I was l... Read More

Potions and Pills
Posted On 09/07/2014 15:35:36 by kiwibarb
While collecting my groceries at the supermarket, I walked along an aisle that appeared to be devoted to pills. There’s a pill for everything these days. Thinking back to my childhood, the only pills in our house were Aspro and they came individually wrapped in a long strip of paper, folded concertina-style, and packed in a little cardboard box. There wasn’t much use for them in our house back in the 1940s, but my mother always kept a box. They weren’t sugar-coated either, and tasted dread... Read More

The Old Neighborhood

My daughter and I took a car trip to our old neighborhood the other day. What a surprise for us both. There's a nice new restaurant where ours used to be. The building is the same but, the renovations were great. The green apartments where we first lived when we came to FL are now a soft purple with black wrought iron on the balcony railings. Simon Schwartz Grocery is gone, Wileys cleaners is gone, the 'Rent A TV' shop is gone. The Pottery Shoppe is gone, and the gas... Read More

Aunty Irene's Quilt
Posted On 07/06/2014 17:23:03 by kiwibarb
Bedmaking was an art 70 years ago. It involved precision and more time than most people these days would devote to making their beds. I was initiated into this art at an early age, and besides having to make my own bed, I had to help Mum with the double bed. At 10 years old I was no stranger to bedmaking, when we went for a holiday to Aunty Irene’s. Her large house had enough bedrooms that Mum and I got one each. Most places we went we shared a room that had twin beds.

The first mornin... Read More
