* NOSTALGIC SUNDAY *

 
It's Time Again for Another Nostalgic Sunday!
 
 
 
I'm particularly nostalgic today and I think it's because of the various challenges I've had to deal with the past month. I'm longing (at least a little bit) for those days of simpler times....of na├»ve childhood summers.....
...of window fans
 
 
...of Jack Benny & "Hoss" from Bonanza
 
 
 


...of aluminum tumblers, with "sweaters" to catch the moisture



 

...of visits to grandparents in Greenfield, Iowa




 
...of hand crank ice cream makers

 



...of hand crank ice crushers





What about you? What are some of your special, yet simple summer time memories from your childhood?



P.S. Please excuse how jumbled my photos and captions are. Blogger just would NOT work with me this evening!
