Share Your World – June 4, 2018

Miss MacKenzie in the passenger seat in Astoria, Oregon.

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS

My coat wasn’t nearly this fancy, back in the 60s jackets like this were a lot different.

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?  I don’t remember a lot of clothes until my teen years.  But I had this dark pink/reddish winter jacket with a hood on it.  There wasn’t any fur.  It kept me warm in Minnesota and when we moved to California I thought it silly to have a winter coat.

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.  I would want to be an American Ninja Warrior.  The 10th Season just started in the US and I so adore that show.  The athletes are wonderful and I so enjoy their backstories.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?  I have a duel personality when it comes to driving.  If we are in a city, I’d rather be a passenger.  And yes when crazy city drives are around me, I close my eyes a lot because I think people will hit me.  Now when I am on the open road and plan on driving for more the 20 minutes, I will drive anywhere.  I think it comes from my roots.  On my mother’s side of the family there were lots of truck drivers and my father’s side my grandfather was a train engineer.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.   It was a rather quiet week.  I did make it to the pool and had a good workout.  My knees seem to have healed nicely.  It’s a bit stiff, but it held up well.  The weather was fairly cool for the most part.  It was a nice week just to lay low and enjoy life.

  1. I remember an ugly hat my mother made me wear for a photo with Santa. I only remember because I still have the photo. And driving? Oh my goodness, don’t get me started. In the last ten years, San Francisco has become a driving nightmare: people on bikes, double parked cars, delivery trucks, construction vehicles, pedestrians who do not look. Even as recent as ten years ago, a person could pull over if you had a minor emergency; now with the population explosion there are parked cars everywhere, so if you need to pull over, you just cannot. Driving is an obstacle course where the winning ticket is not hitting someone.

    1. I only drove once in San Francisco and it was in the early 80s. I did have a small shift car and that was hard enough work. I can’t imagine driving there now with all those people. Any big city I wouldn’t want to drive in anymore. I’ve turned into a country girl driver. 😀

      1. The reason I stay here is that I love the ocean, and I can see it from my house; I go there frequently to watch whales. And my housing cost is low because I have been here so long. It is such a shame this beautiful city is being ruined. New people do not know what it used to be.

        1. As a teenager I loved San Francisco. I had an aunt who lived there (and still does in fact) and I would go visit her for a couple weeks each year. I actually got to know San Fran pretty well.

  2. Pretty much the only thing I remember about my childhood clothing is that I had some. I don’t think “style” was much of an issue in the 1950s. If the clothing was clean, was no more than 2 sizes too big (you were going to grow into it, so your clothing was always too big and by the time you grew into it, it was old) … well, that was fine. Some kids had fancier clothing, but my mother made my clothes. She was a minimalist. Lots of neutral colors. Black, taupe, brown, charcoal. I picked up my style from her and my granddaughter now dresses exactly like me. Which means all our clothing is dark and we can’t find anything in our closets. It all looks the same.

          1. Our trip to Denali was an excursion from a cruise. In fact, it’s not too cold unless you’re close to the glacier. Check out the among of daylight time to see if you light the long day and long night. 🙂 My friend’s daughter is a PA in the army stations there for years. She retired this year and is waiting to move back to Arizona – what a change in weather and environment!

  3. I remember when I was very very little (<=4) and I had a shirt that looked like printed circuit boards and matched my dad's shirt (exact same material; I wonder if my mother made them – I never thought about that before).
    I'd be a pole dancer or a swimmer.
    Driver… I have control issues. I love occasionally being the passenger, so I can see things other than traffic – but it's rare for me to give up that control.

      1. lol… I was a varsity swimmer in high school and still love being in pools. When pole dancing got trendy (10 yrs ago?), I took a LOT of classes. I’m terrible (cause I’m too heavy) and never competed.

  4. Nearly all my great-grandfathers and beyond, both sides, were train engineers… or so I remember it from when my family did a gigantic family tree. I know there were some baptist ministers in there too…. train engineers and baptist ministers.
