The Squirrel!

One day I was out side and the squirrels were running around. I had this idea to catch one, so I would have it for a pet. I went into the house got some food, placed it along the ground just inside the porch past the screen door. I tied a string to a wedge that I propped the door open with so that when the squirrel came in I could close the door. Sitting Killer Squirrelsin a swing inside the porch being very still finely the squirrel came down the tree across the yard up three steps pausing once in a while at the top step. He looked around, walked in, and I pulled the string! The screen door slammed closed with a loud noise! That squirrel went wild, he was running all around inside that porch but when he came across that swing I was sitting on, and across my shoulders, then down my leg it was time to open the door! As scared as I was, I ran for the door. Fumbling with the door handle, and swinging it open, I jumped over three steps looking over my shoulder to see where the squirrel was. He was still inside the porch. While standing there, I thought to myself “I really don’t think that was a good idea to catch a wild squirrel for a pet”.

Things you remember from when you were young!

You know when you’re hanging out around the house with nothing to do. My Aunt and mom were laying in bed reading there books, things were real quiet. I slipped into the room very quietly on the side my Aunt was laying on. I thought about it for a second and said to myself “oh well!”

books I reached over and grabbed her book. She jumped up but I was running out the door by that time and laughing so hard, I looked over my shoulder to see how

close she was. She was right on my heels. I knew right then I was in a lot of trouble. She hollered in a loud voice youngin when I catch you I’m going to whip

your little behind, then grabbing me by the arm she laughed and said “got you” guess what happened.

The Good Old Days!

One night late I was laying in bed, I turned the radio on. There was a talk show on and they were talking about the good old days. A lady called in said let me tell you about the good old days. She started talking about washing clothes in the back yard, she had to heat the water in a foot tub, of course to get water you had to pump it out of a well.  Old Radio You also have two large wash tubs that you have to fill with water. When she would go and visit her sister in Jacksonville it was by horse and wagon that took most of a week to get there. You cooked on a WOOD STOVE and they are so many other things. So in a delightful voice she said let me tell you. Today we have running water, washing machines to wash clothes in. Driers so we don’t have to hang our clothes on a clothes line wondering whether or not its going to rain. We have cars to travel to Jacksonville in and it only takes a few hours. We have electric and gas ranges so in a happy sounding voice she said the good old days are today, and she laughed.

A thought for today

When someone says “in the good old days” you can remember what the lady said on the radio.

My good deed for today I fixed my Wife breakfast. What’s yours?
