I'm participating in Whatever Wednesday today at http://whatevercomestolauriesmind.blogspot.com/2008/10/whatever-wednesday.html
Laurie's theme this week is Childhood Memories. I have so many, a lot of which I'd like to forget, LOL! But I'll tell you a few that always make me feel good.
The first is that my father had converted a small room in our basement into a sort of ham radio center. I loved to go down there and sit with him as he made his calls over his radio. I'm not sure they even have 'ham' radios any more! (Ham, Dad told me, was a joke word for "amateur.") I can still hear him:
"WB2MBU calling CQ, CQ, CQ!"
My dad used to treat us to Carvel ice cream once in a while, too. It was a lot more special back then because there weren't so many of them around. Nowadays, very little is 'special' because it's so convenient to us! Heck, back then a box of new crayons, or some construction paper or Play-do was like treasure!
