Nutmeg Knitter had a post about making a list of things you grew up with, and I think that is a fun idea, so here is a list of things I grew up with.  I think it is interesting to see how each decade seems to have its own things to remember.

Barbie’s Dream Camper
Johnny West Buckboard Wagon with horse
Shawn Cassidy
Fame
Battlestar Galactica (original series)
Milking cows
Looking for kittens in the hay loft (and finding them!)
Trying to gather eggs from beneath a broody hen (and not get pecked)
Riding bikes around the block (7 miles in my case)
Looking for pop bottles to return and buying candy with the proceeds.
Cleaning out the spring that fed the pond every spring
Gathering hickory nuts with my grandfather
Going fishing
Going camping
Going for long walks across neighboring fields in the fog
Nancy Drew books
Wheelhorse mower
Breyer Horses
The Blizzard of 1977-78
Playing the clarinet
Band Camp
Learning to drive on a stick shift
Dr. Scholl’s Sandles
Feathered bangs

That’s all I can think of right now, but each of those items bring back vivid memories.  What list of items can you think of from your childhood?
