Friday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
What was your favorite childhood story?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

This may not be what you are looking for in an answer but when I was about 4 or 5 my parents brought home a record (yes an actual 33 rpm vinyl record) of the Apollo 11 mission.

I hate to think how many phonograph needles I wore out listening to that.

I loved books and stories as a kid (still do in fact) and read all the time, but there was just something about hearing the voices of everyone involved with that first landing on the moon, which happened a few months before I was born, that totally captivated me and I can still remember most of that record.

When I was young, there were several books that I loved. One was called 365 Bedtime Stories, and was about this group of families that lived on "What a Jolly Street" and all the adventures the kids got into.

The other was a series of books about Pookie, the Bunny born with wings. I had all of the books in the series and absolutely adored Pookie. The books are long out of print now, but I have found copies to purchase, so I may put that on my Christmas Wish List and see what happens.

And of course, all the Judy Blume books, Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, Confessions of a Toe Hanger, Gypsy and the Outsiders by S.E.Hinton.

I loved to read from an early age and still prefer books over TV. Thanks for this particular Koffee Klatch question...it brought back good memories!

My favorite as a young child was The Monster at the End of this Book with Grover. My dad would read it to me curled up on his lap in his favorite chair.
As I got older I read everything I could touch, and still do. Its hard to pick. I treasured a collection of Hans Christian Anderson's tales, and The Phantom Toolbooth.
Great topic today!
HUGS to all

My favorite was "Hemi: A Mule". My parents joined the Weekly Readers Club for me as a child and "Hemi" was my first chapter book. I read that book over and over. In fact it still sit on my bookshelf 36 years later.
Hemi was a mule who ran away from a man who treated him terrible. It told about his journey to find a human friend who treated him kindly once.

Of course, I devoured books as a child and still do.
