Q and A…

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 3

1. Whatever happened to kids playing and laughing and having fun without anything that needs a battery?

2. I always think about a couple of sweet boys who died in Viet Nam on Memorial Day. They didn’t die on Memorial Day but I do think about them on that day.

3. I used to wish I was rich with lots of money, but now I know I am rich, I just don’t have lots of money .
4. I just cannot believe I am as old as I am, no matter what the calendar (and mirror) says.

  1. Patricia, I remember playing on tire swings, digging in the bayou for baby catfish, running in the rain…yeah. Those were the days, my friend. I still have SSGT James M. Ray’s bracelet. I keep my promise to remember him. I agree, being rich has nothing to do with money. At all. And, the mirror lies to my inner child every day. *wink* Thank you for being part of Friendly Fill-Ins. HUGS!

    1. I am enjoying your Friendly Fill-Ins though I do have to put my thinking cap on. Tugs at my heart that you still have the SSGT’s bracelet. Have you had any contact with his family so they know he is remembered? Mirrors can be brutal! I don’t look in them except when necessary.

  2. Wonderful answers, a resounding Amen! I think today’s kids are really loosing out on childhood with their noses in electronics, little imagination required, no fresh-air needed, and highly structured activities by over-involved parents. Those of us of the Vietnam generation remember losing friends there all too well, they are not forgotten. Oh, you are so right about being rich beyond words, if I could trade my simple life and bills to pay for wealth but not the Papa Bear and furkids, it would be no contest, I will stay right where I am thank you! I hear you on that age thing. My daughter is now over 40 and my son right behind. How did that happen? It really doesn’t seem very long ago that I was 40! I don’t feel young anymore, but that too is part of God’s plan, and when it’s time to return home to Him I am ready to go. 🙂

    1. Kids are missing out on a lot but I understand the fear parents have these days. When I was a kid I left in the morning and sometimes didn’t go home until supper and all was well. Different world today. Doesn’t it feel good to know where your riches are?! My body is aging and sometimes I think I am losing my mind but I still have a hard time grasping the 68 years old thing.

    1. I do wonder when I will really be old. Not just years and mirrors but really know that I am old. Truthfully, I hope it never happens.

    1. Yeah, but true. Sometimes I will be out and about feeling pretty good then I pass a mirror and wonder who that old lady is walking by? Oops, it’s me!

  3. “1. Whatever happened to kids playing and laughing and having fun without anything that needs a battery?”
    I was born before batteries, hell I was born before wind up toys. No wonder my childhood robbed me of so much. I have to tell that to my shrink!

    1. I bet you had a good childhood without all the fancy stuff. I know I had fun with no techie stuff. But I did have wind up toys! 🙂

  4. Thank you for participating in the friendly fill-ins, I enjoyed your answers. Good question about kids playing. I am glad you are rich even though you don’t have a lot of money. That is how I feel too, although, I wish I did have more money to help cats.Have a nice long weekend.

    1. It would be great to have enough money to feed and house all the homeless…cats, dogs, and people. As it is we can do what we can for them and though it may not seem like much every little bit helps. The weekend is starting out quite nicely and even with the impending tropical storm headed our way it will still be fine. No point in complaining to Mother Nature she has a mind of her own.
