I Remember...

I was tagged by my friends at 'Imagine Alyzabeth An' to do the I Remember tag.

Here are the things that I remember:

I remember taking a bath every Sunday night and watching the Wonderful World of Disney, I would kiss the tv when Tinkerbell flew out on the screen.

I remember believing that my mother's volkswagon beetle was alive and a friend of Herbie the Love Bug.

I remember being Raggedy Ann 3 years in a row for Halloween. Loved her!

I remember seeing Ronald Reagan from a distance in Kansas City.

I remember George Brett signing my program in Royals Stadium with my hair in pigtails.

I remember pretending to be a tree, holding very still and moving my arms with the wind...and our dog Lady came by and peed on me.

I remember the day that Elvis died.

I remember the Lawrence Welk show, my Great Grandmother made us watch it along with Hee Haw.

I remember seeing Star Wars for the first time at the drive in with my family. I was swinging on the swings while watching it.

I remember meeting my cousins for Halloween at my Grandmother's house. We ran the streets for hours, no parents came with us, we got tons of candy.

I remember getting in trouble for talking a lot when I was in school...imagine that.

I remember my first love, Derek A. I met him in 8th grade at Presbyterian Camp. We shared a horse on a camp trail...who can resist a man on a horse? He made me a toothpick too.

I remember spending hours getting the feathers in my hair just right so I could go to the pool and jump into the water. Crazy.

I remember wanting to be a television reporter when I was in high school. That never happened.

I tag:
Loud Secrets
Jewels of My Heart
Mommy 24 Treasures
Our Journey to Mia Lin
Our Little China Girl
Sugar Spice and a Little Rice
Tuininga Treasures
When We Were Young
Parker's Paradise

My Mom loved Lawrence Welk and used to make us watch too.

We had the same routine on Sunday night too.
Yes, I remember when Elvis died too as the next night was his concert in Portland, Maine which didn't happen.
Thank you for being a regular on our blog!

Cool list! I love the one about no parents at Halloween. I remember that too....sad that you can't do that now.

I like the pool one too! :)

Awsome job on your list! I think at one time I was a Raggedy Ann too.

Tag hey? Hummmm now just a couple of days ago I read Alyson's so I have to sit and think of some that weren't already used...

I will try to do this in my next post. I don't think I can come up with a list as long and thoughtful as yours. Loved it.
