Getting to do the wishbone after Thanksgiving
Foots, I have such wonderful wish bone memories!! My mom saved the wishbone from every turkey or chicken she would cook. That was something we always did together!! Thanks for reminding me of that great memory.

Building sandcastles at the beach.
Collecting pop bottles to buy something we need or want.
One year when I was a kid, for some reason there was a bumper crop of milkweed fluff. I don't know why, and have never figured it out. Anyway, the air was full of the stuff, blowing all over. I remember sitting on the balcony with my Dad on a beautiful afternoon, and we would try to catch a piece of fluff as it flew by. I don't think we ever quite succeeded, although we tried hard.
Waiting to see if we could see how the Christmas gifts got here

Trick or treating or "The Great Candy Pillage" with my older sister. We'd take pillowcases for our candy and always had to make two trips out of that one night because if we didn't the pillowcases probably would have ripped
When my family went on vacations, we used to keep an eye out for any old steam locomotives on display in parks and other places. I was interested in them because there was one in the park in Winnipeg, and Dad used to hunt them out for me to see more of them.
Not stepping on cracks in the cement

Going to the drive-in movies with our parents. We always wore our pajamas and we would fight in the back seat if either one of us touched the other...I know stupid. Also, going to the library with my mother was always a treat, along with having picnics in the park when my dad would come home from work. Such good times!!
Jumping up and down on my pogo stick. I loved that thing!

Having a snowcone and it cost 5 cents I save my pennys
Oh, snow cones! I remember making them at the fourth of July with the old fashioned crank machine.
You could get a gumball for a penny at the post office. They were the stalest gumballs ever - somebody must have had a stash of ancient ones they were trying to sell off. But hey, they were only a penny!
Who about the Betty Crocker Oven for Kids
