Simple pleasures: Here I am at about a year old or so, in some sort of tub in the back yard. Seems I liked to take my baths outside sometimes. And check out my favorite bath toy. It's an empty coffee can. Nothing fancy here.
Christmas. I'm assuming this is in 1971. The photos aren't marked, but I look about 2-years-old. What caught my eye about these photos is the toy I am opening. It is a kitchen appliance set and on the box it says "all steel." Won't see that on a child's toy these days.
(Hey, is my pretend bread done yet?)
Remember metal toys? Tonka dump trucks? No plastic when we were kids, and we turned out OK. Well, I think I'm OK anyway. Have to ask my husband about that one...
Looking through old pictures is a good way to get story ideas. I've discovered a couple stories hiding out in these old images. I may not remember all the situations I'm looking at, but what the heck...I'll just start from scratch.
