Riding my big wheel down our sloped blacktop driveway, and spinning when I reached the bottom. Did this over and over all day long. Age 5.
I played with my rock and stick.

I remember my brothers and I always got socks and underwear for Christmas. Our stockings always had fruit and one chocolate Santa. We got books, coloring books and crayons, and a toy. We always had a real tree. Christmas was wonderful. Later when I was older I learned that my mother would use green stamps to get some of our toys. My paternal grandparents would always fly to visit us wherever we were and the trip to the airport was a delight. My maternal grandmother would send us each a Christmas card with a $1.00 in it.
