Molly is our hostess for todays Fun Monday
I have the great honor of hosting Fun Monday this coming Monday, June 9th. For your assignment tell us about a happy memory from your childhood. If you have pictures, please show us your pictures.
To set the scene a little, in 1946 I was a shy little boy of 10 (seems hard to believe I know)
We were holidaying at my maternal Grandmas who lived on a farm near the charming little
town of Myrtleford, complete with a crystal clear creek, sheep dog, cattle, chooks, a horse
and visiting cousins. (BTW chooks are chickens.. hens and roosters)
To make my world complete I had been given a Cowboy outfit for Christmas and was allowed
to ride the horse...... boyhood bliss.
We always called Grandma "Aya" for some reason which is buried in the past too deep for me
to recall now.
Here is Pecos Pete astride his faithful steed, set for another adventure.
Seems hard to believe we were once such skinny little kids, what a joy it would be to be
able to relive those wonderful childhood years, we must not forget that WW2 had only
finished the year before these photos were taken.
