Some friends and I were talking the other day, and the different candies that we offer came up in the conversation. It seemed like almost every candy that they mentioned, triggered a specific event for them from their childhood. So we got talking about things we did when we were kids. Some of us, it appears, got into some mischief when we were young. There were discussions about vacations we took, things that happened at school, and things we had done during playtime.
I told a story about how the town I grew up in had a Main Street that was lined with the different stores for everything you needed or wanted. We had a barber shop, beauty salon, dime store, grocery store, separate stores for mens and women's clothes, a drug store, shoe store, bakery, cafes, and even a hobby shop. This was all within a two block stretch on Main Street. It just couldn't get any better than that. My friends arrived at the conclusion that spending my childhood in a town like that is the reason that I am such a Nostalgia nut Today. I could go on for hours with stories about the memories that were made for me in that little town during the 1960's.
We'd like to hear about some of your favorite childhood memories. Feel free to share them with us here.
