I remember when I was in the second grade, and my mother was in the hospital, recovering from having my little sister. In all the excitement, no one had thought who would take on the task of getting us ready for school. So my oldest brother, eleven at the time, tried to tame the bed heads of myself and my younger sister. What a mess he made of our hair! I can laugh now, because what could a boy know about styling hair, lol.

Love that story, Garnet. My son recently cut my hair for me. As he was doing it he said, "You used to cut mine, now I cut yours. Ahhhhh....the circle of life...and payback." lol

I remember my gran teaching me to dance like that too, lol. Also remember her taking her false teeth out and chasing me, I was really scared but loved her doing it, lol.

I seem to remember being taught how to dance by the same means but I never really got into it. I also remember turning five years old and the cake that I had gotten that day. And even after all this time, I still remember what it looked like.

I just mentioned to my husband that I miss roller skating. I spent every Saturday foe years as a kid and teen at the roller rink.
I took skating lessons as a kid at the rink.

Another memory is using those old key skates that fell off your shoes and landed you on the sidewalk. I remember being a literal bloody mess a few times with those things!
