Childhood Memories
« on: January 02, 2019, 05:24:51 pm »
What are some of y'alls fondest childhood memories? 

One of many for me is spending time with my grandparents during the summer months when school was out.  My grandmother used to spoil us to death!

What area of Kentucky roughly?  I visited Mammoth Cave with my family a few years and had a great time.

We've all got a ton of them.  I'm growing nostalgic as I age.  LOL

I was raised on a farm and thought they'd work me to death, now I'd love to go back.

Chanta, isn't there a town in Minnesota that gets infested with Mayflies every year?  I saw it on TV once.

I'm not sure what city that would be but I did see them once when we headed 45 min south to a casino. They were layered on the windshield of every car and they were sweeping them off the parking lot!

We picked a real cold day, I hated scraping the hog but the fresh meat was delishious!
The cracklin's were good and the ham.

Scraping was always my job too.  We'd always have a big chitlin supper as well.
