Here goes:


1. When I see typewriter I think of typing my huge O & A project in college. We were just on the verge of computers taking over. How much easier it would have been with one. They didn't even have them in the college library yet. I remember that Jeff..we were in the same class....had his mom type his for him, and they did have a computer. I was so jealous. I got counted off some for things that are typical of using a typewriter, so he made better. It was so unfair because I worked so much harder than he did. I guess that was the last time I used a typewriter...thank God!

2. When I hear a locust/cricket in the summertime I think of growing up...playing outside until evening with my twin sister, Vicki. I also recall that my dad couldn't hear them. His hearing was so bad, but he couldn't hear that high pitch sound.

3. When I see my children holding hands with their friends I think of how it won't be too many more years until that will be uncalled for with them. I love the innocence of it. It makes me remember how it felt to be a little kid with a best friend.

4. When I hear a Michael Jackson song I think of my early teenage years....cheerleading camp....our dance to Beat It.

5. When I see a school bus I think of how it felt to climb the steps onto our bus. I can feel the atmosphere...hear "Old Time Rock and Roll" because that is what the bus driver played constantly.

6. When I hear a 60's song I think of my mother playing old 45's and 8 tracks on her big stereo...remember the long furniture looking ones with everything in it...the turntable, 8 track, radio, etc. I wonder what happened to that thing. She loved loved loved Elvis. I remember her crying the day he died..just like the song "1980 Something".

7. When I see a piano I think of my dad buying my twin sister and me a used piano when we started taking lessons. He is such a great daddy. I also remember how it felt to be in the room behind the stage at school taking lessons. Our piano teacher died and we never took again. My gymnastics teacher got killed too
......I guess I was bad luck!!!

8. When I hear myself say "because I told you to" I think of how many times my mom said it, of course.

9. When I see a newborn baby I think of how I just got so lost in the business of having mine that it is like they were never that little.

10. When I hear a plane fly over I think of ...well, if it is a passenger plane, I think of how much I would love to fly somewhere. Jeff and I haven't flown since we had children. It just seems easier and less expensive to drive. Now, if it is a crop duster, it takes me back to playing outside with Vicki again. We would lie on our backs on the hill in front of our house and wait for the crop dusters to fly RIGHT over us as they were making their loop...the cotton field was across the road. They wouldn't spray us or anything. They were so close that we could see the ddetails underneath the plane. That was AWSOME!!!

Okay, your turn now!!!

Oh girl, if you had a word processer as a kid that was fancy! I wish that I would have at least had that. You know, it doesn't seem so long ago that I was in college, but it is amazing how much things have changed. Just the fact that the kids actually take their laptops to class to take notes. How AWSOME. I could have kept up so much better. I can type way faster than I can write. That would have been so cool. I'm not sure how all of that clicking works, but I guess the laptop keyboards aren't as loud. Also, just being able to type papers on there...have access to the internet for things. Wow, I wonder how I ever made it without.

Thanks for answering my poll!!!
