Beautiful retro images by October Rain!
Sigh...nothing like colorful retro images of children in the Summertime to brighten a morning. These photos by Patina from October Rain evoke some special childhood memories for me. They make me think of the Summer that my best friend (Lisa) and I had a carnival in her backyard. We took it very seriously and I even donated the grand prize (a small toy piano) for the person who guessed how many jelly beans were in the jar. I remember my Dad popping pan after pan of popcorn and helping us bag it to sell. There was so much left over that we went door to door afterwards and sold each bag for 5 cents a piece.
But my favorite memory of our carnival was when Lisa and I performed our very own version of "I'm Gonna Wash that Man Right Out of My Hair" from the movie "South Pacific". We really got into it and completely forgot that our crushes (Pete and Ed) were in the audience. Needless to say, those romances never did bloom. lol.
What are a few (or even just one) of your favorite Summertime memories growing up?
