My dad built us an epic slide along with a swing set. The ladder was made out of pipes and the slide was so tall we could see clear over the house. Then a straight sheet of metal with small pipes on each side for hand rails. It was so scary that amazingly no one ever got really injured on it. Guess it scared us into being careful.
Love those beautiful proposals that obviously required lots of thought and preparation. My gentleman friend and I had been dating for about a year and we were driving down the road when he said that maybe we out to get married. I asked him if this was a proposal and he said it was. I told him that my answer was yes. We had a very small wedding with family present. That was over 40 years ago and we are still happily together.
We got our first computer in about 1986. A Tandy, it had an instruction book that said how to turn it on and how to write some programs for it. I constructed an autoexec.bat file for it. Very proud of myself. My tech skills have gone downhill since then.

Was hit by a car once while crossing a street with the light. Young driver was making a left turn while watching for oncoming traffic. I got a few bruises, she stopped and apologized and we both learned something
Growing up, a long time ago, we just tossed trash out the car window. Then the term “litterbug” became a thing. One day when my mom tossed something out the window, my little sister called her a litterbug. My mother was shocked and we started carrying a bag in the car for trash.
Moving into a house my young nephews cam running in to show their mom this weird phone they found with a round thingy with holes in it.
Finally noticed the drop-off..thanks!
Wow, circular! I had a wooden slide rule when I was in high school, that’s how old I am.
We still have local cats, lots of birds at bird feeders, so far this year no squirrels. Local paper keeps warning of bears, haven’t seen any yet, thank goodness.
