24 Hour Blog Question

The Main Questions For you are …

How do you remember moments in your life – what is your process for bringing your memories back to life?

Do you think the memories you have of your life from your yesterdays are an honest recollection – or do you think that they change with every re-telling?

in your opinion how deep is your long term memory?

What are some of your very first memories?


Funny that this is the question today…David loves looking at pictures, he does it all the time. I found that I have a hard time sometimes just because of all the loses I have had. Memories, especially this time of year, are hard for me. Yes, they bring about good memories but they also bring sadness knowing that some of them are the only memories I will ever have.
I think when I want to remember I try to envision myself in the moment I am trying to think of. This helps me think with clarity. If I can recall myself in the situation I feel like my recollections are quite accurate. That being said, it’s all my interpretation isn’t it?

I can recall things from when I was probably three or four years old. I remember going to a babysitter’s house and sitting on the top bunk of the bunkbed they had. I remember a different babysitter that had hens and I was allowed to go look for eggs. I also remember she had channel 56 on her television and that channel had all the good cartoons during the week! Bugs Bunny, Sylvester and Tweety…I remember the first day of school in my new kindergarten class and being scared out of my mind but my friend Sarah dragged me in and told me it was fun. We had chocolate milk for snack. I have tons of bits and pieces and it is fun when all of a sudden I remember something totally new. Who knows if the memories are accurate? I don’t have anyone to really confirm one way or another. That’s life…

Three Things Challenge #767

Find the prompt here

Your three things today are:

Are you serious
are you straight?
that guy you know
the one you hate
his name is Frank
and he’s the best
I’m being candid
He’s passed the test
He does the most
with what he’s got
go ahead
just one more shot
You’ll like him then
and you will see
He’s not as lazy
as he used to be.

I’m in a sing-songy mood today I guess!

FOWC with Fandango — Costume

Find the prompt here

Dressing up is such a drag
from ruby slippers to some old rag
I’d rather stay in home in bed
Than face the night with so much dread
but this year was a new one yet
my hubby knew I’d change, I bet
And so we went to costume shops
To find the wig, the shoes, the props
And when we finally were done
I guess my hubby knew he’d won
we’re going on a booze cruise later
along the inland, there might be gators
Maybe I’ll get drunk and fall
or maybe not and have a ball
but either way I’m sort of glad
for this idea my hubby had.

This is a true story by the way!!

Tale Weaver 28.10.21 – Mistake

Find the prompt here

Once when I was younger
I made a big mistake
I told my dad and mother
the tattoo there was fake
my mother she believed me
my father he did not
and so now she just smiled
from dad, the look I got!
He chased me to my bedroom
as I hid underneath the bed
He reached and grunted loudly
he was so close to my head
I scooted out the back side
and jumped into a run
I know I’d be in trouble
if he went and got his gun!

Thank goodness this is not a true story! First of all, my mother wouldn’t have been so naive and she would have been the one to chase me and want to kill me! Lol!
